Hello,
I have now searched some forums and unfortunately I am not able to find a clear answer:
Is it possible to use custom fonts in Office online (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)?
Thank your for your support and greetings,
Axel

Yes, there is some support for custom fonts in Office Online but it does have limitations. While editing a document for example in Word Online, in the font box type the exact name of the custom font that's installed locally (preview the font in control panel and that shows the proper name) and then that font is available.

I tried this by installing a free font and with a bit of trial and error, I got it to appear and used it in my document.  If other users on different computers have this font installed, they will see the font in the document as it's intended, otherwise, it will fall back to a default font.  Limitations include in the preview when opening the document, it doesn't appear to show the custom font and also not sure about printing, you'd have to try and see if it works properly.

@Cian Allner It does not work for me. I have installed a custom font, and I know for sure its name is Jinxed. It is an .otf file, does that matter? The file name is Jinxed-Regular.otf, what name do I have to type in because it doesn't work.
