The Ribbon font in Office 2007 and Office 2010 applications is hard-coded and cannot be changed. You can change the size of the font using Windows appearance settings, but you cannot choose another font.
- FontSubstitutes is a Windows setting and it no longer influences Office settings because it was affecting the printing processes. Changing the mapping should only affect the font that is going to print.
- In older applications like Office 2003 the system fonts could indeed be used for menu entries but this changed in later versions of Office.
- Changing settings from Control Panel – Personalization (Themes, Window Color and Appearance) only affects the size and the color of the text, but not the font.
