Hi, I tried to import in Illustrator an eps figure created with Matlab 2014b but I get a warning that some font is not installed:
"The document uses fonts or characters which are not available or are in a different format than originally specified.
Font not found on the system; missing font has been substituted."
What is the new font that is used by default in the figures of the latest Matlab version (2014b)? Isn't this just Helvetica, as before?

The default font should be Helvetica. You can check that before printing the figure to an EPS file using:
>> get(gca, 'FontName')
In my case, it returns Helvetica:
title('A Title')
>> get(gca, 'FontName')
ans =
You can try to change to another font and see if you still can't import the EPS file correctly into Illustrator.
For example:
>> set(gca, 'FontName', 'Tahoma')

To get default font properties without the need to create an axes,
get(groot, 'defaultAxesFontName')
get(groot, 'defaultAxesFontSize')
get(groot, 'defaultAxesFontWeight')
get(groot, 'defaultAxesFontAngle')
