Development of the typeface began in 2003.
Constantia 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. It was designed for either print or on-screen uses.
This font, along with Calibri, Cambria, Candara, Consolas and Corbel, is also distributed with various free Office viewers, the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack and the Open XML File Format Converter for Mac.
Writing in 2011, Hudson commented, "I actually don't like the name Constantia very much, and every time I see the sea birds on the dock while I'm waiting for the ferry I wish I'd thought to call it Cormorant."
