I found a way to do so in SharePoint 2010 (see this link) but this method no longer seems to work with SharePoint 2013. In 2010, it changes the name of the font you're overriding in the drop-down as well, but this does not happen in 2013.

I added this to my "fonts.css" file:

@import url("arial.ttf");

.ms-rteFontFace-4 {
    -ms-name: "Arial";
    font-family: "Arial", arial, helvetica, sans-serif !important; 

I chose to change .ms-rteFontFace-4 because that one was originally Comic Sans. Now, the text does show up in Arial, but in the drop-down with the font options it still shows the name "Comic Sans" instead of "Arial". I'd like it to show "Arial".

Any help is greatly appreciated.


Have you tried this procedure?


I am exploring it to add new text styles.

Also the css class in SP 2013 may have changed. You might need to use the developer tools in IE/Chrome (F12) to track down the new css class name.

Hope it helps.

  • I used that link yes, so far with success! I now just use predefined styles for styling pages. Thanks! – Magali Aug 22 '13 at 14:10
