    changing text from helvetica to arial with javascript

    DuanesSearchForKnowledge Level 1

      I’m working with PDF files in illustrator and whenever the file uses Helvetica I have to change the font to Arial. This gets old when working with hundreds of illustrations. Can anyone tell me how I would go about changing all text that uses Helvetica bold to Arial bold and Helvetica Roman to Arial?

       

       

       

      Would I loop through all the text frames and get the value of the font and use that value to change them or is there a more global way to go about this?

       

       

       

       

       

      Any help would be appreciated,
