From the help files:

"Specify a default template
Open the templateA document that contains pre-designed formatting, layout, and some text. that you want to specify as the default templatethe boilerplate document used whenever you start a new document.
On the File menu, click Save As.
Click Template.
The Save As Template dialog box appears.

Type a name for the template.
For example, type MyTemplate.

Select the Use this template for new Word Processor documents check box.

If you decide not to change the default template, click Save As Template on the File menu, and then click Defaults to use the default template Normal.wpt."

Jeez that didn't come out too well.

Click on Help in the Word processor and type in Default Template, it's all there.

Perhaps I should go through it again, I was in a rush out and hadn't time to fix my corrupt post above.

Open the Word Processor, make the changes you want in the document, for example, increase the font size to the desired point size (it's 10 by default). When you have made all your changes, go to File > Save as and click on the 'Template' button. You will be asked to give your new template a name; name it something apt. Then tick the little box which says "Use this template for new Word Processor documents", then click OK. Now close the Word processor. From now on your documents should open using your new template.

As an aside and for further info. The same can be done for Microsoft Word documents. To change the default document font setup, open a new document and go to Format > Font, change the options you want for example set the font size to 12 or 13, change the Font type, Font colour or whatever you want. Then click the 'Default' button at the bottom, you will be asked if you want to change the default template for all documents, choose Yes. From then on all your new documents will open that way.
