Set Default Style for Text Tool
Once I select a font in TEXT panel I want this font to be default font every time I use the Text tool. Until I change it again.
Why is this valuable to you:
Now you have to change font every time when you use Text tool — bad usability. Slows down the workflow.
Additional request 1:
Also, it would be nice to set a base font size for the project. So that every time I use Text tool I'm suggested this exact size.
Additional request 2:
Possibility to set up default global font sizes for <p>, <h1>, <h2>, <h3> etc. And ability to scale them relatively to each other like they do it here: http://www.modularscale.com (Editor's note: For this request, please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12934134-global-reusable-text-styles instead).
Note: there’s a limited version of this feature already available. If you select an existing piece of text and then leave it selected while you use the Text tool to create new text, its style will match the piece of text you had selected.

what I do as 'workaround' : create an artboard and on this artboard I put a text 'Default txt'. Then I change the font, size, color. I copy and paste this to have a few different styles.
And whenever I need to use a certain style on my page, I just copy and paste my appropiate default txt, select the text and type the new text. Its more easy and quick then having to change all the time the settings :-)

I want to change every font in the document to our font family of choice, or on creation have it default to a provided style.
Having correct font family matters because we are playing with labels and copy, which needs medium-to-high fidelity text sizing. We also build around screenshots of existing elements (sidebars, nav, etc) and we want the fonts to match.

Pretty painful changing the font. Even worse, forgetting to change it for some elements and only realizing it 30 mins into the process.

Same issue with me

if you choose a font family for a project, remember that selection for that project. If I choose ComicSans as a font while I'm working, I shouldn't have to re-select it every time I want to add type. It gets tedious having to do so every time.
