I have tried with both the default set by restoring to defaults which has Times as the main font in 
writer and Arial for Calc and also setting my default fonts to something else. I've modified 
preferences and also restored them to defaults

Doesn't matter what I do I still have the problem where periodically documents that were perfectly 
fine the last time I opened them, will suddenly have invisible fonts. When it happens the drop down 
menu of fonts has a blank line where that font name should be.

No rhyme or reason for why or when the problem crops up.

Nothing I've tried fixes the help file problem. It's always totally blank no matter what I do. 
Makes it impossible to get any help if I can't read it.

Something to try: open Wrtier with a blank document ("Untitled"). Use this key combination: 
Command+T. This opens the Styles and Formatting window. The list you see are the paragraphs 
styles. Locate Default in that list. Then Control+Click Default and select Modify from the 
context menu. Click the Font tab. This has three lists: Family, the Typeface, and the font sizes. 
See if you can change what you need here.
    If you open Calc and use these same key combinations, you should be able to do the same thing.
    Another key combination to use with Writer open: Command+, (Command key and comma). This 
opens Preference. Look at LibreOffice Writer -> Basic Fonts Western. There you can set the font 
that you want to use for LibreOffice and the font sizes for specific categories.
    If I had my choice, I would use the Styles and Formatting window for changing fonts and their 
sizes. I have been doing this on my Mac for the past 4 years with no problems with originally and lately LibreOffice.
