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

Agreed. it makes no sense. Why hardcode fonts in a product? These are not being printed and there are some standards that customers have for their web and then along comes a limited set of fonts.

RE: Support for custom fonts

Also please ensure that textbox font sizes match font sizes used in any visuals. At the moment one font size is not the same across these two options.

RE: Support for custom fonts

It would be nice to import any (windows) font. We want to use for example TheSans

RE: Support for custom fonts

Will there be a support for Font Awesome with this as well?

RE: Support for custom fonts

That is great news, Amanda. Thanks for that! Yeah it would be great if in the future we could upload custom Open Type Fonts -- but in the meantime the support for some of the most common built-in fonts is fantastic.

You guys are really coming along. Well done all!

RE: Support for custom fonts

I'd love to be able to add custom fonts to Power BI to give more variety and branding to my reports. Being limited to the default options is a huge design constraint!

RE: Support for custom fonts

Same as @Benjamin Swift....would like to be able to set a font for all objects and visualizations.
Currently, I'm forced to use font sizes much larger than I'd like in order to make the axis and data labels legible from the back of the room. Setting the global font to something with a little more weight would be preferred.
