      Yes, what I wrote to the list is what I did first to 
make sure I was correct. Since that time I have opened a new 
spreadsheet, and the column widths were 2.50cm. Then I 
changed the width of columns B, D, F, and H to 2.00cm. I 
then saved it as a template in the  
.libreoffice/3/user/template folder. I closed the 
spreadsheet, and then opened a new spreadsheet. Columns A, 
C, E, G had a column width of 2.50cm; columns B, D, F, and H 
had a column width of 2.00cm. (I did not check the columns 
past H.)
      This was done on LO 3.4.6 from the ODF website (Debian 
      Second test: I have since copied this template to LO (I have not installed Then I used File > 
Templates > Organize to set this template as the default 
Calc template. When I opened a new spreadsheet in LO, columns A, C, E, & G were 2.50cm wide; columns B, 
D, F, and H were 2.00cm wide.
