In August 2014, the NeoOffice engineers released NeoOffice 2014.2 in Apple's Mac App Store. NeoOffice 2014.2 added the following new feature:

[edit] Improved rendering of Calibri and Cambria fonts in Microsoft Office documents

Many documents created in Microsoft Office use the Calibri and Cambria fonts. Unfortunately, Apple does not include these fonts in OS X and these fonts are only available from Microsoft.

Because the height and width of Microsoft's Calibri and Cambria fonts is very different from most OS X fonts, text and tables in Microsoft Office documents may look very different in NeoOffice when the user does not have these Microsoft fonts installed on their Mac.

Since many NeoOffice users do not have these Microsoft fonts, NeoOffice 2014.2 automatically uses Apple's Gill Sans font when Calibri is not installed and uses Apple's Times New Roman font when Cambria is not installed.

The following screen snapshots show how NeoOffice 2014.2 displays Word documents created using Microsoft's Calibri and Cambria fonts:
