Microsoft Office plans to replace Calibri font

In the 2007 version of Microsoft Office, the default font was Calibri in Office. But after more than a decade Microsoft Office plans to replace Calibri font as a default. The Calibri font was made in 2007 after the launch of Microsoft Office. Microsoft announced the change of font in a blog post. The new font has been changed as a default in the office since 2007.

The company is planning to add 5 new fonts to its office. The new 5 fonts are as below:

  • Bierstadt
  • Grandview
  • Seaford
  • Skeena
  • Tenorite

Out of these five fonts, one font will be selected for Microsoft Office as per the opinions of the users. Moreover, all these five fonts are already available to download through the Microsoft Support website. As a reminder, the Times New Roman was also being replaced by Calibri font. Fortunately, however, if you are a fan of Calibri font then the font will be still available on Microsoft Office. The lovers of Calibri font can use it by changing the settings from Office.  According to Microsoft, the Calibri has served well, but the company believes it’s time to replace it with someone else.
