Ability to set a default font for new text in preferences/synced settings
Using latest Premiere Pro on Mac, when creating new text it currently defaults to Minion Pro font. Every time I start a new project or new editing session I change it to Arial since it's easier to read - often just using these as temporary labels when starting a project and organizing footage, not as actual title design which we do later in AE. Not a huge deal just adds another tiny bit of work that adds up over time. Would be great if I could set Arial as my default font, and also as my fallback font for when a font is missing, both of which I think you can do in some other Adobe programs like Acrobat. Currently when a font is missing it defaults to the first one I have alphabetically which is a pixel art font called 04b... which I don't use often. Thanks!
I would love also to be able to set the default text settings in a graphic layer.
I am almost always just using them in arial center justified for slugs but have to set them when I put the first one into any sequence.
If "favourites" view were enabled by default, that would solve a lot of issues. Most editors have only a handful of fonts they regularly use

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback, Derek. I am also not a particular fan of Minion Pro ;)
Since you are familiar with After Effects, does the way they handle remembering your last font selection meet your needs, or do you need the additional control of a preference? If you need more control, any more details would be helpful.
Minor note: I posted this under "Essential Graphics" since I didn't know where else to post it but am typically just using the text tool to pop in text quickly and not the EG panel.
