Do you want the font names/size for Default font and language fonts?

The L5 Default is called Skolar, which you would have to licence for your use --> http://www.type-together.com/Skolar

I think the Default L4 font is Athelas, which I see at the same site for Skolar.

Your language fonts are shown in Program Settings - and they should be in your Fonts folder.

As for size - http://community.logos.com/forums/t/43692.aspx

So if I change the document to Skolar it will change it in Logos as well?

I've used Times New Roman size 12 for my Normal font in my PBBs, and they come out the same font as other Logos resources.

I wish Logos would convert the fonts when importing and converting the PB....

It's not clear what you're asking, and therefore you're getting answers to different questions. What precisely is the problem, and what do you want to achieve?

I guess what I want is that when I import a personal book it matches my Logos font settings.  So if I change Logos from default font to something else the PB would also change, apparently that isn't the way it works from what I am understanding.

If you use Times New Roman in the .docx file, that is exactly how it should work.

Hmm, that is what I used but it doesn't seem to be working that way.  It seems to stay in Times New Roman in L5.

If you've set the text to Times by applying that font to a selected area, Logos will interpret that to mean that you want Times. If your Normal style is set to Times, and you don't alter that in the text, the Logos will interpret that to mean you want to use their default font. So you need to make sure your style is set to Times New Roman, and that you don't apply font changes to the text.

Ok, so I am way behind at seeing this (six years....) but thanks! That's what I needed to know.
