Can Freehand remember font replacements - Macromedia Freehand

We have recently converted over the the Adobe Opentype FontFolio collection and one of our users wants to know if there is a way to have Freehand remember to always replace missing font X with font Y. We are trying to convert our doents to the newer font system and keeping the older fonts is not an option. The user has said that Quark has this ability and wanted to see if it was also possible in Freehand Let me know if you need any more info Thanks...

    What is your platform and OS?

    Before using OpenType fonts in FHMX (Mac), read this technote about
    kerning problems:

    http://www.macromedia.com/go/tn_16761


    If you are on a Mac you could run an AppleScript to Find & Replace one
    font with another in an open doent. This is not the same as replacing
    missing fonts upon opening. A command to do that is not in the FHMX
    AppleScript dictionary.

    If find a way please share it here. This has bugged me for years and I
    think I even submitted this as something to address to the Freehand
    wishlist. We receive graphics for use in our publication from a couple
    of sources and they don't use the same fonts we do. I don't even want to
    think about the amount of time I've spent clicking through the font
    replacement dialog boxes.
