            Bug ID: 102204
           Summary: LibreOffice in French, default model in A4 format, but
                    new document in Letter format
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: 5.1.5.2 release
          Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)
                OS: Linux (All)
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: medium
         Component: Writer
          Assignee: libreoffice-bugs@lists.freedesktop.org
          Reporter: documentfoundat...@cauwelier.net

Hello,

Running LibreOffice fresh 5.2.1.2 on an ArchLinux configured in French:

$ locale
LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=fr_FR.UTF-8

The package extra/libreoffice-fresh-fr is installed too.

LibreOffice interface is in French, assert by the About dialog too: "LocaleĀ :
fr-FR (fr_FR.UTF-8)"

In Options > Language Parameters (I guess it's the name in English), the
default language is "French (France)" everywhere.

And yet new documents use the Letter format, from the US and Canada. Whether I
open a new document by launching Writer directly or I click on "Writer
Document" in that interface when all documents are closed (not sure about its
name).

Searching the Web I found I could edit the model name "Default" but it indeed
uses the A4 format. When I specifically create a new document from that default
model, the document is in A4 format.

I could reproduce it when reverting to LibreOffice still 5.1.5.

The only way I found is to create a new document, fix the page format and save
that document as a model with the name "Default". I guess it takes precedence.

But I thought I should report this issue.
