    Is the default font Arial? You could try changing that default font to Times New Roman by editing the Normal style.

    Otherwise, you could try Find and Replace.

    Also, try selecting all and applying Arial. Symbols that you inserted using Insert>Symbol are protected and should not be changed. (On the other hand, if you applied a symbol font directly to a character, then the character might not be protected.)
