Install Font Microsoft Word Mac

Locate the folder that contains the new Mac font using Finder. Once you’re in the folder, find a file that ends in.ttc,.ttf, or.otf. Double-click on the file to run Font Book automatically. Finish the process by clicking Install Font. Installing Fonts on All of Your Mac Accounts Using Font Book. Answer (1 of 11): In addition to acquiring and using fonts installed with other applications, you can download fonts from the Internet. Some fonts on the Internet are sold commercially, some are distributed as shareware, and some are free.

Macs are not perfect even though one’s productivity is much higher with one. When things go wrong – they can sometimes really go wrong.

One customer had issues with a critical branding font that installs fine on everyone else’s Macbook but not theirs. I now know more about fonts that I ever wanted to know especially how Microsoft fonts fit into the Mac picture. I researched dozens of websites each adding a piece to the puzzle. Here we go …

  • There are 4 font stores on your Mac
    • user fonts stored in /Users/youraccount/Library/Fonts
    • computer wide (all accounts) fonts in /Library/Fonts
    • system fonts in /System/Library/Fonts (never ever touch these)
    • Microsoft Office fonts in /Library/Fonts/Microsoft (ahhh I see)
  • ONLY TTF fonts work for Office – or so MS claims
  • To install fonts for MS Office 2011 – don’t double click them – this installs them naturally in the user fonts
    • instead – start up Font Book (use the spotlight or magnifying glass to find it quick in the upper right of your Mac)
    • drag them from your Finder onto Computer (under the Collection section at the left of the Font Book app)
  • A reboot triggers the Mac Font store to sync with Office. Don’t forget to reboot before ripping your hair out
  • Adding fonts to the user fonts will never show up in Microsoft Office products
  • Don’t assume that because a font works in lets say Word, that it will appear in Excel – it might once the cache catches up
  • Microsoft font cache file can be delete so it will force a refresh – but it can be in 2 places – check both. Microsoft moved it for Office 2011 for Mac for some computers different than others
    • Lion? goto finder and hold the option key and …
    • click the menu Go->Library or type in a folder /Library by choosing the Go->Go to Folder option then navigate eventually to /Library/Preferences/Microsoft/Office 2011
      • not there? Microsoft moved them in later releases of Office 2011 to /Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Preferences/Office 2011 – even MS’ articles are incorrect!
      • also you might need to look in /Users/yourname/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Preferences/Office 2011
    • when you re-start work or Excel you will now see a task completing to rebuild the cache files and if you observe the location above you will see new cache files
  • Here is a link to completely remove Office on a mac and is the final puzzle piece that allowed me to solve this riddle http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2398768

Many thanks to these sites:

How many times we found our-selves looking for a Font, that we wanted to use in our MicrosoftApplications. How many hours wasted navigating around the Web to find the specific Font. Not only that, but then we had to Install it also, either by right clicking on it, or by installing it with the use of the ControlPanel. Not to worry anymore. In MicrosoftOffice365 applications, there is no need to worry about it, or no time to waste with it. All we have to do is to open the specific application that we want to use, and then from the Font drop-down menu, we just select the Font that we want to download and that is it. A preview of the Font is available, and every once in a while, NewFonts become available.

If we move our mouse on top of these Fonts, a pop-up dialog box appears mentioning: Name of Font, Select To Download.

All we need to do is to click on the Font that we desire to Download, and in a few seconds, it is ready for use.
