You are using 3.5.6. Since that time, 3.5.7 was issued to fix a
bug but I don't remember why right now. 3.5.7 might not have that
problem. Also the newest release is 3.6.3 with 3.6.4 coming soon. 3.6.3
might also not have this problem.
I agree that this can be frustrating. I do seem to remember of
your problem with help some time in the past, but I don't remember what
the problem was. I'm not even sure how to even search for it on the

I have tried with both the default set by restoring to defaults which has Times as the main font in

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
OpenOffice.org and lately LibreOffice.
