Hello,

None of the OTF fonts in Microsoft Word 365 are working and they are displaying as a generic font (i.e. Arial). The TTF fonts are working fine and the OTF fonts are working in Excel and other applications. Before the upgrade to Windows 11 they worked fine.

More than a month, and a series of new builds but this problem remains - Word and Outlook seem to be affected, no problem in Powerpoint.

 

No response from Microsoft despite reporting on different fronts.

 

Converting OTF to TTF is a work around for the moment - but still ....
