Hi! Is there a way to permanently change the default font (Miryad Pro)? I get it but every time I close Illustrator and run it again, Miryad Pro comes up again... I go to Windows / Type / Character Styles then click on Normal Character Styles and change the font on Basic Character Formats but as I said when I close Illustrator and run it again... Miryad Pro!

Thank you so much Monika! I have done it and now each time I run Illustrator a file Print-02.ai is created in the New Document Profiles folder. Is this right? I have deleted the default Print.ai file and put the new Print.ai created as shown on the video. Why is this Print-02.ai file always created?

That should not happen. 

I have just tried it out in my version and it didn't happen. Is your system managed by IT? Then maybe they have put measures in place that reset your changes.

 

Illustrator is organized in a way that it can reset things on its own. There are original versions of the NDP in the application folder in "Support Files". These are copied to the User folder "Application support" when Illustrator finds something is wrong. 

 

Did you reboot Illustrator after replacing that NDP?

Yes Monika. I reboot Illustrator and it's still creating that file... What do you mean with IT?

Is there an IT department that manages the computer?

 

Anyway: if Illustrator keeps creating these unnecessary NDP, what you can do, is:

- rename your custom NDP to something else (it actually doesn't matter)

- take an original Print NDP from the folder Applications > Illustrator > Support files > New document profiles

- copy it to the Application Support folder

 

The problem with that approach is that those custom NDPs are somewhat buried inside the New file dialog box.
