    Default font

    ChrisDx Level 1

      Hello;

       

      The default font in CS3 appears to be Myriad regular 12 pt. Can I change this document/program wide?

       

      Thanks;

      Chris

          Yes what you d is create a blank document

           

          then open the character style panel and change the normal style to some font other than Myriad 2 pt

           

          then save this document (I suggest calling by the font name) you save it to the New Document Profiles folder

           

          The folder on the Mac is located at Users/Username/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Illustrator CS3/en_US/New Document Profiles

           

          Now when you create a new file instead of selecting the print dialog select from the start up screen the font name you gave the document or from the new document dialog from the pull down menu under Profiles.

           

          When you start typing the default will be the font you changed the normal character style.
