On LibreOffice Vanilla (Mac App tore version) changes to basic fonts aren't saved and return to the default selection (Liberation Serif/Sans) on restart.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new document and type and style some text as heading and some as body text.
2. Go to app menu "LibreOffice Vanilla" > "Preferences…" > "LibreOffice Writer" > "Basic Fonts (Western)".
3. Change default fonts to something else.
=> See fonts being changed in your document.
4. Close LOV and reopen it.
5. Create a new document and type and style some text as heading and some as body text.
=> See fonts being back to defaults (Liberation) again.
- Font settings are changed while LOV is running.
- Font settings are back to defaults after restart.
Basic font settings should be remembered as new defaults for new documents (as is the case for the non-App Store versions of LO).

I switched the default font in the Basic font preferences to Lumina. This change was retained on next start of LO, the default font for a new Writer document being Lumina.
Please test with the latest LOVanilla available and report back.
Currently, this is worksforme.
If you can still reproduce it with the current release of LOVanilla, please indicate which font substitutions you are using.

Hey Alex, thanks for testing. I switched back to regular LO in the meantime for stability so it took me a while to get back to you. Sorry.
I still (maybe again – I thought it was gone before) had this issue on LOV 6.2 and figured font settings weren't even saved *within* a session (gone in new windwo/document). So I decided to reinstall LOV and delete all "Application Support"-files before reporting. This solved the issue for now. So it probably was related to corrupted user settings.
I'm very sorry for the buzz and set this thread to "RESOLVED/NOTABUG". I'll report back if the issue reappears repeatedly.
