Define 'change the fonts in a bunch of reports'.

If this means 'change the font of EVERYTHING in EVERY report', then the fastest way to do it would be to get a text editor like UltraEdit, open all .rdl files, and do a Replace in Files between the two.   After all, .rdl files are actually XML.

If this means 'conditionally change the font of certain things based on data', then you'll have to spell that out, as it is possible using right-click:Properties > Font > the various expressions.
