How do you change the font in multiple text boxes?

I just started using illustrator and I can't figure this one out.  Maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

I made a bunch of text boxes using the type tool.  Is there a way I can link the boxes and easily change the font?

Thanks,

Justin

No need to link them. Just select all of them, then change the font.

As with any other object, multiple text objects can be selected by shift-clicking or marquee-dragging with the selection tool. If you get into the habit of placing all text on a dedicated layer, you can lock out other layers and simply select all (Cmd+A Mac / Ctrl+A Win).

You would have to select the boxes with the Selection Tool and then change the font style in the character pallet. Depending on what font style you change to and how your text is setup you may have some reflow issues that will have to be dealt with individually.

Select all your text frames. From the Type menu go to Threaded text and choose Create. This should leave the boxes selected, then from the Character Panel or the Type menu choose the font and weight you want.

You select the text frames holding dow the shift keys then go to Type>Thread text, I would select the text frames in the order you wan them threaded.

Then once threaded you click the text tool inside of one of the text strings and do a command A to select all the text and then choose any method of changing the font such as Character Panel, Control Panel or Type>Font menu item.

you can also look into creating Paragraph styles as well.
