Pesky Microsoft Fonts

I couldn't locate a nasty Microsoft font earlier in the day and came across this neat trick to extract them (legally) from a readily available download via Microsoft themselves. Works like a charm! Here are the fonts included in the Package:


  • Calibri

  • Cambria

  • Candara

  • Consolas

  • Constantina

  • Corbel



All versions have Plain, Italic, Bold and Bold Italic as True Types.

So that's 20 fonts according to Typekit :)

my math tells me it should be 24 fonts (6 faces x 4 styles = 24)

but who could argue with Adobe, their math is way better than mine.

 You're right, I only counted 5 on the list.  :embarrassed:

there's a good chance you may only get 20... it's microsoft for cryin' out loud.
or, you may get 26, but only 20 will work.
