Fonts in MS Word – Adding new font styles to your list

In MS Word, an entire family of fonts is usually referred to as a Typeface (like Times New Roman). People also prefer using font style or font type.

And “Font” as a word, is reserved for a combination of different features such as font style, size, color and weight (like Arial, 12 pt, Red, Bold).

Therefore, the word “Font” in MS Word often means a whole family of display features such as the typeface, color, weight, and/or size.
