Change character in default font
I'm looking for a way to change a character in my default font. I use the font family Proxima Nova (an Adobe font, what I have activated). In InDesign you can choose between two character for the letter 'a'. There I can change the font with find glyph en replace it for the other one. This is an extra action I make for all my designs.
It would be awesome to set that letter 'a' as a default a in that typefont. Because I can only use the right one in InDesign. AdobeIllustrator don't has that option. Is there a way to change a character and set it as my default character in that font so that I can use it in all my Adobe programs?

How can https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/fonts.html
be the best way to change the default font?
What would be so wrong with having it on the "Type" page of the "Preferences" menu?
