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.

        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.
