Aptos - new default font for Office


After 15 years Microsoft will soon change the default font in all Office applications from Calibri to a new font called Aptos.

Designed by Steve Matson the font was designed to have the astute tone of The Late Show host Stephen Colbert.

You can read the full back story on the font here.


As with most Microsoft changes it's always good to understand what is changing.

New Office documents will have Aptos as their default font instead of Calibri. If you have loaded a different default font, then there will be no change.

If you already use a custom theme in your documents, then there will be no change.
