Change default fonts on opening a PDF?

I open PDFs in Illustrator that were created in Autodesk Inventor. The default of Myriad Pro is applied and I would like to change that. I have made a new document profile and a new workspace, but the profile is only good for a new document. The workspace does not change the default type. I could save lots of time if I could change this behavior! I am working in CS6 on a 64-bit Windows machine.


Perhaps it is only a question of getting Illustrator to recognize Arial?

    AI uses Acrobat's font substitution lists. Your would have to edit/ modify those, but that's a global change that would henceforth affect every PDF/ AI file on your system that uses those rules, including e.g. rasterization in Photoshop.
