With the June Desktop update, we now support updating your chart fonts to any of the fonts we currently support for textboxes. Learn more in our blog: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-june-feature-summary/#fonts We will be working on allowing you to use your custom installed fonts as well in a future release.

Why isn't this done yet? Something as simple as allowing us to use the full gamut of fonts available on our system should be a given!

P

Please can you provide the functionality for custom fonts to be embedded in the report so it is not dependent on the viewer having the custom font installed locally.


Thanks

P

End users don't have knowledge to install the .ttf files on their machines to view the custom font.


As a developer we are able to install the custom fonts to system fonts and PBI reports render the custom font, but customers are seeing Times New Roman as default font though we have updated the Themes file with custom font.

Please allow custom fonts to be accessible on the service without the need for users to manually install .ttf files.


Many organizations use custom fonts for branding purposes and even when editing the report theme JSON file to use a custom font, it's not possible to see it on the service unless it's already been installed locally.


The default Times New Roman font which is shown in its place just makes me sad :(

I think is using custom fonts are really useful when you want to align your designs to the company brand, but I think would be even better to have am option to set a custom font globally, so you do not need to apply the font to each object.

You can perform extensive excel like cell, row and column level formatting using Inforiver. Check out this video!

Exports to include custom fonts is a much have for accessibility and brand.

It's great that you can add custom fonts to Power BI, but unless I'm missing something, it seems poorly thought out that you then can't use these custom fonts in text boxes.



I'd like to use a specific font that my company uses, and have managed to import it into Power BI. 



However, the *only* place I'd like to use it is in the text boxes that act as my report title headers. 



And I can't...

P

It would even be nice if the same fonts available to visuals were available to text boxes. For example, DIN is a font i use for visual titles quite a bit, but I'm unable to use that in a text box for some reason. This means i can't replicate a visual title with a text box.
