Candara is a humanist sans-serif typeface, which is bundled with Windows Vista and Windows 7. Candara’s verticals show both entasis and ekstasis[clarification needed] on opposite sides of stems, high-branching arcades in the lowercase, large apertures in all open forms, and unique ogee curves on diagonals.

The family supports most of the WGL4 character set. OpenType features include automatic ligature sets, numerals (tabular, proportional, oldstyle and lining), numerator, denominator, scientific inferior subscripts, and small caps.

Candara is featured in the Microsoft ClearType Font Collection, a set of fonts developed to take advantage of ClearType to improve the reading experience in Windows Vista and Office 2007.

This font, along with Calibri, Cambria, Consolas, Corbel and Constantia, is also distributed with various free Office viewers,[1][2][3] the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack[4] and the Open XML File Format Converter for Mac.[5]
