Add a font

I want to add MONTSERRAT as a font to choose from in all my reports. How can I do that?

With the addition of Themes, this is now possible. As I was also looking for the solution and stumbled on this same query which looks unanswered, I thought of posting the solution from my end which is working fine for me.

 

1. Go to https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-community-report-theme-gallery/ and download the JSON file for any theme you like.

2. Open the JSON file using Notepad++ or similar editor and add below lines. Change the font family to one you would like to have.

"visualStyles":{
	"*":{
		"*":{
			"*":[{"fontFamily": "HELVETICA NEUE"
			}]
			}
		}
	},

3. Import and select the theme in PowerBI to set the font family for entire report. This should set you up.

 

Cheers,

Hi @AKB_2K19 , 

 

Do you know if there is a way that I can get the fonts to work on the service and embedded as well?

I also would like to use a font in my text boxes that is not currently included in the selection.

You can import it as .less file.

@import (less) url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Montserrat');

Sounds good! Where do I enter this code?

This is currently possible only with custom visuals. 

 

Sample custom visual with Font family assigned under style/visual.less https://github.com/Microsoft/PowerBI-visuals-sampleBarChart

@kiranvijay please could you help me? I have the same request to add Lato font to use in a .pbix file

I've installed nodejs but I can't understand how to use and where I have to add the code @import ect.

Thank you

I have the same question. I'm install new font into Windows>Fonts. But it still not effective with "Font family" in Power BI.

I think it should be use the same library.

 

I'm update new one. My friend install the same font and can see it. I don't know how to fix 😞

MONTSERRAT is actually just a standard font. Even that is not possible?
