Give users the ability to set a theme (either an out-of-the-box or custom theme) as their default for all reports created in Power BI Desktop.

*** Original idea text below:

A dedicated place to set defaults for all Power Bi visuals. If I always want my titles to be 15pt font, and my general font to be 12 pt, I currently have to set on each visual. Attachments: MergeStatus.txt (0.17KB) MergeStatus.txt (0.21KB) MergeStatus.txt (0.18KB)

I concur with the sentiments/feedback from my peers on this topic. We currently have the ability for the custom theme/fonts for our corporate standard to work on the Power BI Desktop which does not work on the Power BI cloud service even though we have purchased Premium Capacity to allow for some customizations.

Most PBI Users work for a company. Many companies have Brand Standards that require certain fonts, colors, etc. to be used. I'm very surprised that this isn't yet a capability with PBI to set defaults. It would make it so much easier for Users to align with their company's standards without having to individually change each and every visual.

Please update to set up default font function

We have created a custom theme for our organization, and we must import it every time we start a new report.

Really strange to see such an option absent

Branding is wildly important and having the ability to set font and certain color defaults would be very helpful.

How is this not already possible? Modifying the JSON file is confusing and difficult.

I've consolidated a few Ideas into this one and updated the text . We've added the ability to set default font sizes etc., and provided some controls to import and export your custom themes. This idea would let you set one of those themes as the new default for all future reports.

Please enable the ability to set, create, modify common formatting globally or for all controls on a tab, or group of controls on a tab, or group of tabs. This would dramatically reduce the amount of time it currently takes to set formatting attributes using the visualizations interface

There is an incompatibility problem when using Segoe UI Light after exporting a report to pdf and when editing the file using Adobe Acrobat.
