When you change a font to a nonstandard font in a theme that is applied to a SharePoint Server 2010 site, the nonstandard font does not appear in the list of available fonts

SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a SharePoint site on a server that is running Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010.
  • You apply a theme to the SharePoint site.
  • You change a font in the theme on the SharePoint site to a nonstandard font.

In this scenario, the nonstandard font does not appear in the list of available fonts.

Notes
  • When you change a font in a theme to a nonstandard font, changes to the font may show in the preview of the page.
  • In this scenario, font changes may include changes in font style, in font size, or in font color.
  • When you change the font to a nonstandard font on a page that has a theme applied, the change does not affect the page.
  • For a list of standard fonts in SharePoint Server 2010, see the "More Information" section.

CAUSE
This behavior is by design. Changes to fonts in a theme can be applied only when you use the standard fonts in SharePoint Server 2010.
RESOLUTION
To change the font in a theme, use one of the standard fonts in SharePoint Server 2010.
