Font Substitution Preferences
I often have several of the same fonts come up that I'm missing in the documents I'm working on from other people. I think it would be great to be able to have a user preference to define a specific font I have to replace it automatically rather than just a default font.
This could also help with fonts that are technically the same, but one is an open type vs post script version.
If Adobe are dropping Type1 fonts (which I still use), every time I open a document I will need to use find fonts to substitute to TTF or OpenType versions of the font. Having a font substitution preferences would save my much time and frustration

Setting defaults for font-displacement is a tool that was already offered by Corel's text program Corel Ventura in the 1990s. So I think Adobe could also come up with this after 20 years...

I'm working on a Book project with 170 Chapters...a global font change option would have saved me countless hours of work, not covered by styles...
I third this - automatically matching missing fonts with updated versions that simply have a different name would save me vast amounts of time.
Totally agree. Our company has its own font. Unfortunatly it was never intended to be used with eastern europe languages. When i got those translations i always have to use the function "Find Font". And it always starts with "Minion Pro". For a quick and dirty fix i would be more then happy if the font substitute setting would be stored globally. In the next step it would be great to define specific fonts to replace automatically.
