Japanese customers have reported issues with the readability of some parts of Outlook Desktop. We’ve heard your feedback and implemented several fixes to address those concerns.
The Segoe UI font has been replaced by the more language-appropriate Meiryo font in the following areas:
Message content in the Reading Pane
The Sender’s name in the Reading Pane
New Message Subject font
Weather Peek (Label Font)
We have also implemented a fix to address a truncation issue.
We have also implemented fixes to ensure the ‘Focused’ and ‘Other’ text fits neatly in the mail pivot header with truncation.
The fixes have been implemented in build 11328.10000 for Japanese customers in Office Insiders. Those fixes will become available to other customers over the coming months.
