Description Sašo Smolej 2017-06-15 07:05:59 UTC
Creating a file from within Calc:
1) 1 sheet
2) Localized sheet name
3) Default font is Liberation Sans

Creating a file within Windows:
1) 3 sheets
2) English sheet names (see bug 35912)
3) Default font is Arial

Tested on, although I'm pretty sure this has been happening in Libreoffice since I started using it, which was before 4.0.

I presume this is a legacy thing that was never really updated, and it's likely there are further inconsistencies that are not immediately apparent.
It's also an issue in Writer (default font is Times New Roman instead of Liberation Serif) and likely other programs as well, although I haven't created bugs regarding those.

Likely the best fix would be to generate files in share\template\shellnew on install to account for the localization issue. The ones currently there are from 2015.

Tested with LO 6.3+ and I didn't reproduce for number of sheets and default font. I'll set WFM. 
Should you reproduce again, please explain.
