more and more documents are only read on screen. Thus, sans should replace serif as default by Libreoffice. – HongboZhu Jul 3 '15 at 7:35

in libreoffice writer go to tools.. options. Select the options for libreoffice writer. Here you have options for the default font. you can select the font for different types of paragraphs
