Keynote - How do I change the fonts in all slides

I just imported a Powerpoint file into keynote and am now fixing it. I would like to apply a new font to all the slides, to replace the Times font with Comic Sans. Is there any way to globally do this or do I need to go to each slide and do this individually?

Is this available in the master slide? (I don't own Keynote, but I guess it must be similar to PowerPoint...? (Only much better!))

Yeah - master slide should change it all

Go to the view menu, select show master slides

Then, click on the master slide (it will be shown in the top left corner) and select the text, hit command-t (to bring up the font panel) and change it to comic-sans. This should automatically change all the text in your presentation.

EDIT: it worked in mine in all but one text box on one page, which was easy enough to change manually. I think it didn't change that one because it was the second bulleted list on that page, but I'm not sure..
