  • Fonts must be .oft files, .tiff files does not work with Office Web Apps Server 2013
  • .oft files have to be installed locally in every Office Web Apps Server in the farm, as well as in user’s local machines
  • Every time a new Font is installed, is it necessary to restart every Office Web Apps Server
  • Fonts must be installed as administrator
  • Fonts will not appear in the dropdown list of fonts, but the Font is it possible to be searched using the searchbox. Note: It has to be spelled exactly as the name of the Font.
