ctrl-e should show the properties toolbar to allow you to change the font
ctrl-e does bring up a 'pop-up text properties' toolbar. but it does not have an option to change the actual font. only the color and size and so forth.
also let me clarify the main issue in my first post:
lets say i write comments in a pdf and the font selected in preferences is times new roman. then i change the font in preferences to courier. ALL THE COMMENTS BECOME UNREADABLE. that is a serious problem.

i am working with a text in ancient greek (polytonic). the fonts that i would prefer to use are 'gentium alt' or 'alkaios', but these both cause issues in acrobat. the one giving me the least amount of trouble is palatino linotype, so i will use that for now. but if there is any clear answer for why this is happening or how to fix it, i would greatly appreciate it.
