Update, we will allow some custom fonts soon in mobile and paginated reports. 

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.

RE: Support for custom fonts

Edit the font and color of the card visualization so that it more easily integrates with text. Also, align the way that card visualizations look between the desktop and online apps. Right now, the card visualization renders several pixels lower in the online app than in the desktop app so everything looks wonky when I publish it.

RE: Support for custom fonts

Improve with the ability to add custom font like you would in Microsoft Word, etc. via downloaded font files (.ttc)

RE: Support for custom fonts

Better yet, add custom palettes and fonts we setup and use those as defaults for elements on a reports/dashboards. We should still be able to change those, but at least let us Brand our work for our company without having to do it manually for everything!!

RE: Support for custom fonts

There are a limited variety of font styles to use in a text box, please add more like the handwritten font

RE: Support for custom fonts

This is a major usability issue. The lack of customization means that users cannot read the labels on the axes if they're sitting towards the back of the room. Also, this will cause issues for people with low visual acuity, and the low contrast between the light gray and the white background makes the contrast difficult to read.

RE: Support for custom fonts

Font sizing on graph axis is critical. The lack of the feature really limits the way that graphs can be uses for reporting. Also we really need fully customised number formatting as per Excel.

RE: Support for custom fonts

Please allow the following:

* Select font (arial, verdana, etc)
* Select formats: Bold, italic, underline, subscript, superscript, strikeout.

Also please ensure that we can change parts of the text. For example we might want parts of a text to be in red and other parts to be in blue, or only one part of the text to be in bold.

RE: Support for custom fonts

Why only grey colour available for font in text boxes?

RE: Support for custom fonts

Font sizing became defacto standard in 1984

RE: Support for custom fonts

The font of the chart title is one example. There are two requirements:
1. be able to control font size and style per report - for all charts
2. control the default title (an other) fonts for the whole reports or all reports.
