Common Fonts: Office for Mac & Office for Windows

Full list of fonts available in both modern Office for Mac and Office for Windows

The following fonts are available on both

  • Macintosh OSX 10.4 and later with Office for Mac and
  • Windows 8 or later with Office for Windows

You can use these fonts in Office documents, knowing that anyone who gets the file – using Windows or Mac will see it using the same fonts.  The document should look very close, if not exactly, the same on either operating system.

The list is similar, but not exactly the same, for earlier versions of Windows, Mac and Office.

Once upon a macOS, Macintosh users had a list in the Mac Font Book collection called ‘Windows Office Compatible’. That font collection appeared in Office font lists. Alas, that’s not available anymore, probably because it was useful to customers 😔

The following fonts can be found on both Macintosh and Windows computers with Office but are NOT on the ‘Windows Office compatible’ list.  This might be because there are differences between the Mac & Windows versions or merely an oversight.

  • The original Windings symbol font on the Mac with Office 2011 even though ‘2’ and ‘3’ additional symbols are listed.
  • Webdings
  • MT Extra thanks to Bob M. for spotting this one.
