I am trying to make a PB using the text of the Book of Jasher.  It seems that no matter what font I use in my word file, it get's converted to into some standard Logos font.  Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Also, I would really like to tag this text with Chapter and Verse, and would like to end up with a search field / window at the top of the where I could enter chapter and verse and go right to it.  Like with Scritpures, where you type John 3:16 and it jumps there.  Only here I guess there would not be a book name.  So i would type something like 10:12 and would want it to jump to Chapter 10 verse 12.  Is that possible, and if so, how would I mark up the text?

See my attached docx file.  Any hints or advice would be welcome. I am not an expert with PBs!

1 - fonts...  It appears that Logos will replace any fonts given in your style sheets with fonts that Logos likes.  So if you want a different font, use the Font menu to modify at that level instead of at the style sheet level.

2 - chapter and verses.  You can use any datatype that Logos has out there.  The problem is that I am not aware of any such datatype for the Book of Jasher.

After much experimentation I found that styles are in fact recognized by the PB compiler, BUT the styles cannot be in Words THEME styles.  By default Word has Times New Roman, Calibri, Canbria, and Arial in their THEME styles, so if you try and use these styles Logos PB will strip them off and use it's own.  However if you go into Word and change the default THEME styles to be font styles you are not using, then PB compiler will recognize and properly process your styles.  So as you see below, I changed the Theme Font to Corbel / Miriam which I don't use in my document.  Then all my styles (using Arial) font worked properly.

Another problem I found was the the PB compiler does not handle SMALL CAPS.  Whenever I tried to use SMALL CAPS my font size would get messed up.  The numbers were small, and in general the font size seemed to be unpredictable.  Removing all SMALL CAPS from my document solved the problem.
