Replacing fonts automatically - Adobe Indesign Windows

I want to replace fonts automatically from one font family (e.g. Helvetica) to an other (Swiss) to balance different font data bases from my service providers. Does someone know the magic word for this? Lucien....

    InDesign doesn't have something like a font replace list like, IIRC,
    Corel Draw, so you are out of luck.

    I think Lucien wants the substitution to happen automatically when you open the file. Not manually like you can do with Type > Find Font.

    What a scary thought. If it were that automatic, how would you even know you
    were substituting fonts? I know a program that works this way: Word.

    I don't know why you'd want to do this either, but you could just deactivate the font before opening the file in ID and then choose your replacement font when you open the file.
