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

The following fonts are available on both



  • Macintosh OSX 10.4 with Office 2011 for Mac and
  • Windows 8 with Office 2013 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.

Macintosh users can find this list in the font collection ‘Windows Office Compatible’.

  • The original Windings symbol font on the Mac with Office 2011 even though ‘2’ and ‘3’ additional symbols are listed.

  • MT Extra thanks to Bob M. for spotting this one.
