Fortunately, Carlito has the same front metrics as Calibiri (and Caladea has the same metrics as Cambria).
The font-substitution table in LibreOffice then allows me to work on documents using these fonts while getting a layout the same as my colleagues on Microsoft Office.
Quoting from the Debian Wiki:
LibreOffice font substitution
To install them, issue these commands as root in a shell:# apt-get update # apt-get install fonts-crosextra-carlito fonts-crosextra-caladea
In LibreOffice, you exchange Calibri and Cambria with Carlito and Caladea this way:
- Open the "Extras" menu
- Go to "Options"
- Choose "LibreOffice"
- Choose "Fonts"
- Define a substitution for each of the two fonts (Calibri -> Carlito, Cambria -> Caladea).
- Remember to check "Always" in the substitution lines.
Once the program is restarted, documents sent from MS Office look almost the same on your screen and printouts.
