MADRID, April 28 (2021) –
Calibri, the default font for all Microsoft ‘software’, including the Office suite, will no longer be used by default in the products of the American company, which has proposed five new custom fonts that users choose their successor.
The Calibri font has been used by default in all Microsoft programs and services for 14 years, when in 2007 it replaced the original font of the Office suite, Times New Roman.
“As people and the world around us age and grow, so should our modes of expression.Microsoft has assured through a statement, in which it thanked Calibri for its role but stated that “it is time to evolve.
To choose the font that will replace Calibri, Microsoft has introduced five new custom original fonts: Tenorite, Bierstadt, Skeena, Seaford and Grandview.
The new sources cover various sans serif styles, or sans-serif typeface, in which the characters do not use serif or serif endings, and which Microsoft has defined as “humanistic, geometric, Swiss and industrial style”.
The American company will allow users to choose their favorite font among the five proposals, and will evaluate it in the coming months. Microsoft has stated that all of them, like Calibri, can be chosen from the font menu of their programs like Office.
