Default Disable Asian font in comments or choose Latin font by default

I've got an MS Word document from a Chinese person. When I put comments in it, the font defaults to DengXian Regular, a Chinese font. How can one change that?

Currently, I change the font to Calibri for each comment box.

In the "Format" > "Font" menu, I see these two entries
Asian text font: DengXian (Body Asian) . . .
Latin text font: Times
when the text cursor is in the main text, but "Latin text font" becomes DengXian when the cursor is in a comment box.

As far as I can tell, no Chinese characters are used in the current document and so we can afford to disable Asian fonts altogether for this document, if such a thing is possible.

I use MS Office 2016 on macOS High Sierra.
