Option To Turn Off Cloud Fonts in Word for Mac
Please provide an option to turn off cloud fonts in the Mac version of Word as you do in the Windows version. I've had to return to version 16.16 to get away from such a large font menu.

I choose and manage the fonts I want to use on my Mac. I don't want to see an overly-long list of fonts in Word that I'm never likely to use - they clutter up the screen and destroy my carefully-chosen set of fonts.
all these comments and more. We use suitcase for font management, and had previously shuttled word fonts into their own folder. Now cloud fonts conflict with them, override them, etc. What world is it that arial won't display properly!
Please add an option to turn off all the crazy, useless, and ugly typefaces that I (and 99% of my organization) will never use.
You need to disable this feature... People who are professionals need to see the fonts they actually work with, not junk fonts that they have the possibility to install.
This is horrible! I've bought many fonts and Word is ignoring them, only to add the ones it thinks I should use. Whose bright idea was this?

This is the most annoying feature. Yes you can have too many effing typefaces! More is worse.
Yes! while you're at it, let us control the list of fonts we see in general (not just the cloud fonts but all the never-used fonts that predated it). The fonts menu is totally useless.

Word is just getting worse and worse when it comes to fonts and font management. Now the font menus are so hard to navigate it is almost comical. There are far too many useless, obscure fonts that cannot be removed. Foreign-language fonts cannot be removed. Fonts aren't all in alphabetical order. Some fonts are displayed WYSIWYG, some not. The complete disregard and contempt for the end user is breathtaking.
Pro users do not need this. It slows down our work when we need to select fonts, for example in creating new styles or documents.
Choice of fonts is decided either by corporate standards or by document designers and editors.
We use either default fonts – so docs can be opened and read seamlessly by other users – or fonts which have been purchased for the business or specific project.
Please make this an option for home users that your professional and corporate customers can disable / disregard or remove.
