Calibri is a humanist sans-serif typeface family under the Microsoft ClearType Font Collection. In Microsoft Office 2007, it replaced Times New Roman as the default typeface in Word and replaced Arial as the default in PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, and WordPad. It continued to be the default typeface in Microsoft Office 2010 and Microsoft Office 2013 applications.
The font features subtly rounded stems and corners that are visible at larger sizes. The typeface includes characters from Latin, Latin extended, Greek and Cyrillic scripts. OpenType features include small caps, subscripts and superscripts, and extra ligatures.
As with other Sans Serif ClearType Collection fonts, it includes unique italic type features, which are common in modern typefaces.
The typeface is distributed with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Microsoft Office 2007, Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac, Microsoft Office 2010, Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac and Microsoft Office 2013. The current version is 5.86.
The typeface is available in Google Docs as of September 2010.
Calibri Light is included in Microsoft Windows 8 and later. Calibri and Calibri Light are the default fonts of Microsoft Word 2013 for body text and headings.
This font, along with Cambria, Candara, Consolas, Corbel and Constantia, is also distributed with the free PowerPoint Viewer, the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack and the Open XML File Format Converter for Mac.
The typeface is licensed by Ascender Corporation for use by end users, consumer electronics device manufacturers and other users. The typeface is also licensed by Monotype Imaging to printer manufacturers as part of the Vista 8 Font Set package.
