When opening a CSV file with Calc, the font setting of the default template is ignored. There appears no way to configure default font for CSV tables.
Steps to Reproduce:
Import a CSV file with Calc
The font of the opened CSV file is always "Liberation Sans" no matter what font is used in the default template for Calc
The users should be able to choose their font for CSV tables as well.
User Profile Reset: No
It is odd that the default template is reflected by a new spreadsheet but not by an imported CSV file.
Please explain what the default template is and what you expect. If you mean Styles and Formatting > Default, that's a per document setting. And File > Templates > Manage Templates there is no default.
I understood the problem.
1. Change Default cell style => change font to Liberation Serif
2. Save file as Template (File-Templates-Save as Template) and select "Set as default template option" there
3. Try create a new Calc file => we have a Libreration Serif font in every cell
4. Try import any CSV file
5. We have a Liberation Sans font in any cell with imported CSV file instead Liberation Serif

My opinion - in this case imported data should have cell format from default Calc template even it was changed
I don't think it's a UX bug. Heiko?
This is not a bug.
A (default) template is like existing document that is opened and copied when you create a new document. It isn't used when you open any existing document, even if the format is simple, such as CSV.
The template can contain column widths and row heights; it may contain styles; conditional formatting; headers and footers... using the template for CSV would appear as if all that info was in the file.
Doing otherwise would create surprise in users when they open a CSV, see headers there, edit, save and see it reverted to old headers (not "no headers" as reasonable per format, but old headers from template).
It could *maybe* follow e.g. Options->LO->Fonts->Font Settings for HTML, Basic and SQL sources. Personally I would prefer a per-filter configuration, e.g. own configuration for CSV. But that's a different issue, requiring own report.
