I'm using LyX with the following Document Settings:
Document Class -- "Book (Memoir)"
Fonts / Default family -- "Default"
Fonts / LaTeX font encoding -- "Default"
Fonts / Roman -- "Default"
Fonts / Sans Serif -- "Default"
Fonts / Typewriter -- "Default"
What is the actual name of the Default fonts that LyX uses when the document class is set to Book (Memoir) class. How do I know if the default is "Times Roman" or "Bookman", for instance.
I see that I can change the "Default" from the dropdown menu to an actual name such as "Times Roman", "Palatino", "Bookman", "Utopia", "New Century Schoolbook" or another from several others in the dropdown list, but I'm figuring that the "Default" option must be considered the overall best option with the most versatility and readability, or if not, then atleast it must not be a poor choice.
I'd like to know what the "Default" fonts are, though, for Sans, Roman and the Typewriter settings.
Also, I'd like to know what "LaTeX font encoding" means, and what the "Default family" is. I'd like to stick with the same font family if possible, since I want a consistent look, and all the versatility such as Small Caps, Italics, many font sizes to pick from for Title, Parts, Chapters, body text, and monologue insets, and the Chapter Name / Book Name headers of each page... and the footers etc.
I'm not concerned with at all with rendering equations. The "Bookman" font looks pretty readable. Is it also versatile and recommended?
