Because you don't have the Helvetica fonts. You could buy them -- is one source.

It's not a mystery. Different fonts have different font metrics. You
can't replace Helvetica with Times New Roman (FM's default replacement
for missing fonts) without your whole document reformatting.

Wouldn't it be better to buy the fonts that the document was intended to

If you insist on making everything Arial: 

1. Open Paragraph Designer and select the Default Font tab. 
2. Select Commands > Set Window to As Is. 
3. Set Family to Arial. 
4. Select Commands > Global Update Options. 
5. In the dialog box, select Default Font Properties Only and All
Paragraphs and Catalog Entries, and then click Update.
