I went out and bought some fonts on my own a few years ago-actually paid for them-but when I try to use them in the latest version of Illustrator, any carriage return will switch back to the default, Myriad Pro. This is pretty infuriating. How can I stop it for good?
Do you mean set up the document in the default font (Myriad Pro), then use that document as a Template, in the AI sense of template, at 50% grey, behind the document I am working on in my preferred typeface? Unfortunately, that won't help because the font I want to use takes up about 2/3 the line height of Myriad. Meaning that 20 lines of my preferred face will end about an inch shy of 20 lines of Myriad Pro. Not much of a template. Same as setting up the doc in Myriad, then using Arial Narrow in the new document. Moreover, Myriad never actually goes away. I can select Arial Narrow, type a line, hit return, and start typing again, and Arial Narrow is gone. Myriad Pro saw an opportunity at the carriage return and took it.
