In MS Word, an entire family of fonts is usually referred to as a Typeface (like Times New Roman). People also prefer using font style or font type.
And “Font” as a word, is reserved for a combination of different features such as font style, size, color and weight (like Arial, 12 pt, Red, Bold).
Therefore, the word “Font” in MS Word often means a whole family of display features such as the typeface, color, weight, and/or size.
If this distinction makes sense to you, let’s now see how we can explore the list of font styles in MS Word as well as how to add new font types or typeface.
