When it comes to communication, businesses produce any manner of documents that are read on a number of different mediums, including print or online. The font you use can really make the difference to your documents, when it comes to presentation and readability. It is therefore a good idea to set a default font, based on the type of documents you usually create. If you have Microsoft Word and Office 365, this is quick and easy to do.
Below are steps highlighting how you can change the default font for Word 2010 and 2013, along with a few suggested fonts for different types of documents produced.
How to set the default font in Word 2010 and 2013
The biggest reason setting this default is recommended, is when you create a large number of the same types of document, e.g., blog articles, and want to ensure there is uniformity. When looking to pick a font, you want to choose one that will be easily legible in the medium readers are more than likely to see your content on e.g., on paper or a website. Here are four of the most common font types and what they are best used for.
To sum up: If you are printing material, or it will be printed, use a Serif font. If words are to be presented online, or stored in Word (not printed), use Sans Serif, and for HTML or other code, use Monospace. Most Cursive fonts should generally be avoided in business communication, reserved instead for marketing materials such as posters, flyers and leaflets.
