Default How to inherit a font from another style?

2018 Update: On Word 2016 for Mac, this method still works for defining a style without specifying a font and allowing the font to be inherited via whatever magical mechanisms that exist!

Word has many options shortly of a stylesheet,
Trying to make all "Heading n" styles to
inherit from a common ancestor "Heading", the idea being, change the font type (e.g. Arial = Times) just in one style
"Heading" and that effect would then ripple through to all "Heading
n" and then ALL headings would use that new font.

Could this be done now?
I can't quite imagine this font, as I've never heard of it before. I think changing the font in the PCB layout is not possible. At least, I couldn't do it. In fact, I hate the default settings, I hate the fact that I can't adjust the font to fit myself. With my vision, I need to download my own font on https://upfonts.com/nike-font or customize an existing one. I think people with poor eyesight will support me. Wherever possible, I upload my font, because I can only read it, and it is also beautiful and interesting.
