As with most system fonts, the design world seems quite negative on Calibri. And I get it, but many of the recommended alternatives are impractical for those of us that need to produce a lot of content in Excel, at a pace that makes it impossible to redo every table in another app.
So can anyone recommend other sans options that
- work at small point sizes for
- dense, tabular, mostly numeric content,
- both on screen and in print, and
- have tabular and lining figures turned on by default
The last one is critical (since Excel does not support OpenType options) and I don't even know how to filter for it at foundry/catalog websites.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
