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

Ability to load custom webfonts like Materialize for example...
We are talking about supporting add files like:
- .EOT
- .SVG
- .TTF
- .WOFF
- .WOFF2

This would increase the possibilities of integration for vectorial icons etc...

RE: Support for custom fonts

add new feature to enable the developers to adding new fonts type, or enable the power bi to access the fonts in the windows

RE: Support for custom fonts

Allow custom fonts in text boxes. Power BI Desktop should allow any font that is installed in Windows. Feel free to put certain parameters around the font type so that it can be appropriately rendered and exported. But in general, why can't we have more fonts?

RE: Support for custom fonts

We need the ability to use the same fonts we can access and upload to other MS Products.

This is an important feature for my company as we have required fonts to stay within our trademark(s).

Without the ability to use the required fonts we are limited with publishing our PBIs to our 25K+ licensed users.

I cannot speak for what decisions my company will make but I know we need to stay within our trademark(s) requirements.

How can we get this feature added so we can upload fonts.

RE: Support for custom fonts

Adding glyph based fonts would be really useful too:

RE: Support for custom fonts

We need the option of embedding these fonts within PowerBi too so it loads via CSS and there is no reliance of getting our end users to install the font everywhere.

RE: Support for custom fonts

Could we possibly get the google fonts up? They should be easier to implement on Service

RE: Support for custom fonts

Please work on allowing custom fonts in reports and dashboards so that they can be displayed in an embedded analytics solution, especially in an app owns data scenario. For developers and companies who are extremely brand conscious, not having the ability to display our brand's font immediately forces us to consider other options like open source charting libraries or an entire BI tool altogether that does have this feature.


Thank you!

RE: Support for custom fonts

Please allow adding custom fonts with ease to all visuals. Looks odd embedding Power BI reports into organizational application where all others follow same standard but this looks different.

RE: Support for custom fonts

If I can install a custom font and it shows in my dropdown in Word, it needs to also show in the dropdown in PBI, without having to go into the JSON file. I, too, would like to see Roboto (and all its variants).
