    I am interested in Sabon Next, but it appears to be so new that users at the other end might need to download it.
    Does “System fonts” mean that these fonts are included with operating systems–and are installed when current systems are updated?

      Hi Nina, the fonts are included with the application, rather than the operating system. The new fonts all work with Office 365 suite (Now named Microsoft 365) and I assume but have not been able to test current/new enterprise versions of PowerPoint and the rest of the Office suite. So that means that for old and non-authentic versions of PowerPoint, these fonts won’t work, but with the proliferation of the 365 suite – that should be the minority of users. These fonts only work in Microsoft products, I assume that is done for licensing reasons – so you won’t be able to copy the fonts over for older users.
