Several default settings have changed in Office 2007. The two most noticeable are the default font and the default margins.
The new default font is a brand-new font called Calibri. The default size is now 11, rather than 12. Times New Roman (the old default font in Office 2003) is still available, but no longer the default.

Default margins have also changed. In Word, for example, the default margins are one inch all around (top, bottom, and sides) instead of 1.25 inches:
