How do I set the default font for the text box tool in Adobe Acrobat?
(If the solution depends on the version, assume Version 8.)
After configuring your desired fonts, you should be able to click in a white area of the text box and select "make current properties default". That should save your font settings.
I tried to solve the same issue for a long time and now I found the solution. I think this issue regards only Win 7 64bit users with Adobe X Pro. So, if you want to change the default font for the textbox, and the right click and Set As Default Properties does not work, the only way is to modify value in regedit. Don't worry about, but be really careful inside registry.
