It is not easy, but it can be done:

To change the default font you need to change the New Document Profile that you use to base your new documents on, like Print.ai, Art & Illustration.ai, Web.ai.

Open the profile you want to modify from:

Mac: (User)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Illustrator version number/language folder/New Document Profiles

Win: C:\Users\....AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator version number Settings\language folder\x64\New Document Profiles

Open the Window > Type > Character Styles panel.

Double click the [Normal Character Style] and change the font in the Basic Character Formats.

Save the file.

You may have to save the file to your desktop first and replace the original after that.

I prefer to have set my Preferences to Use legacy “File New” interface to make it easier to select the presets.

yep...that'll do it Ton. Let's see how well the new formating (default font) sticks through the updates.

Good to hear that helped. I would suggest to make a copy of the preset file just in case it gets overwritten by an update.
