Office 365 ProPlus is being renamed to Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise. For more information about this change, read this blog post.

Symptoms

Download this app from Microsoft Store for Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, Windows 10 Team (Surface Hub), HoloLens, Xbox One. See screenshots, read the latest customer reviews, and compare ratings for Font Book. Fonts that are installed with Microsoft Office 2013 products. When you install a Microsoft Office 2013 product, many fonts are installed on your computer. This article describes the fonts.

After you install a font into the Fonts folder in the operating system and start Microsoft Word for Mac, the font unexpectedly is not available in the Font dialog box, in the drop-down list, or in the Formatting Palette.

Cause

Third-party fonts are not directly supported in Microsoft Office for Mac applications. Some third-party fonts may work in one application and not in another. Other third-party fonts are installed in a 'family'. A family usually consists of the third-party font itself together with some or all of its variations (bold, italic, and so forth). Sometimes, a font may be displayed in Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel, or Microsoft Entourage, but you may be unable to use one of its variations, such as italic.

Office does not support custom fonts. This includes any fonts that were manipulated by a font or typography program.

Note

Microsoft Office for Mac technical support does not provide support for installing or configuring third-party fonts.

Basic font troubleshooting

If the following methods don't resolve your font issue, contact the font manufacturer or the website from which you purchased the fonts.

First, restart your computer, and then test the font again. Some installations are not complete until the computer is restarted. This also makes sure that all applications are restarted after the installation.

Method 1

  1. Clear the font caches. To do this, quit all Microsoft Office applications. On the Home menu, click Go > Applications, and then click Apple's Font Book.

  2. On the Edit menu, click Select Duplicated Fonts.

  3. On the Edit menu, click Resolve Duplicates.

  4. To remove all the fonts from the computer that Font Book just disabled, follow these steps:

    1. After the duplicates have been resolved, select each disabled font, click File > Reveal in Finder, and then drag it to the trash.
    2. You may notice that Font Book sometimes turns off the newer copy of the font instead of the older one. If you prefer the newer copy, drag the older one to the trash, and then re-enable the new one.
  5. Restart the computer. Apple OS X will rebuild its font cache, and Word will rebuild its font cache from that.

  6. For best performance in Word, try to run with all your fonts enabled all the time. Each time that Word starts, it compares its font cache with the system font cache. If the two don't match, Word will regenerate its own font cache, which can take a few seconds. If you have dynamically enabled fonts, the system font cache will appear different nearly every time that Word runs this comparison.

  7. You must do this every time you install an update, because the Microsoft installer tries to restore the disabled fonts each time.

Method 2

Restart the computer in Safe mode. Then, restart the computer normally. For more information about how to restart your computer in Safe mode, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

2398596 How to use a 'clean startup' to determine whether background programs are interfering with Office for Mac

Method 3

Create a new user account to determine whether the problem is associated with an existing user account.

The font is damaged, or the system is not reading the font

If the font is not a custom font and does not appear in your Office program, the font may be damaged. To reinstall the font, see Mac OS X: Font locations and their purposes.

Brief history of Bahnschrift design and production

Bahnschrift is a brand new digitization of the famous DIN 1451 character design standard and was released as a variable font for Windows in 2017.

DIN 1451 is a standardization for letterforms designs created by the German standards body Deutsches Institut für Normung (German Institute for Standardization) in 1931, and was intended for use on road signs and other technical implementations. The design was particularly optimized for legibility, simplicity, and ease in replication. Over the years, DIN has become a popular typeface for a wide range of design applications.

The Microsoft Typography Team began development on a custom version of the font in 2013 in response to the ongoing interest in DIN among designers at Microsoft. Working from the original spec (design and metrics), a Mittelschrift and Engschrift version were created. This version was fairly limited in character set and was used internally for a few projects, but wasn’t shipped for public use.

Word

The current version of Bahnschrift began development in 2016. At the time, Google, Apple, Adobe, and Microsoft partnered to develop a common implementation of variable font technology and Bahnschrift was chosen to become Microsoft’s first variable font. To prepare for the transition from static to variable, the Bahnschrift source was completely rebuilt from the ground up by Aaron Bell of Saja Typeworks and was expanded in weight, character set (adding Extended Latin, Greek, and Cyrillic) and manual hinting to ensure high quality rendering on a wide range of devices.

Variation in Bahnschrift

Bahnschrift’s premiere feature is its implementation of Font Variations along two axis—weight and width. With five pre-set ‘instances’ along the weight axis, and three ‘instances’ along the width axis, Bahnschrift can accommodate a wide range of styles and applications even in applications that don’t fully support variable fonts.

For those applications which do fully support variable fonts, Bahnschrift becomes a virtual playground of weight and width. Find the SemiBold is too light? Make it a little darker. Text slightly too wide for the text block? Make it a little narrower. With Bahnschrift’s powerful variation technology, you can fully customize the design to create exactly the style you need.

Other features of Bahnschrift

Aside from the variable font technology, Bahnschrift also has some other tricks up its sleeves.

  1. Duplexing: The weight axis of Bahnschrift is fully duplexed—that is to say, the width of each letter is exactly the same whether in Light, Bold, or any weight in-between! This is pretty unusual in the world of fonts and makes Bahnschrift particularly useful for tabular data where everything needs to align, or in applications where line lengths are locked.

Figure: Character length is exactly the same across the weight axis, ensuring text lines up perfectly!

  1. Character sets: Bahnschrift includes support for over 200 Latin languages (including Vietnamese!), Greek and Cyrillic (with localized forms for Macedonian, Serbian, and Bulgarian).

  1. Manual hinting:Bahnschrift is hand-hinted (special code added to each character) to ensure that it can render sharply, and clearly, across a wide range of Windows devices and point sizes.
