Fontfamily DIN doesn't work in theme json

I've seen a couple of post regarding problems with certain fontfamilies in json themes (e.g. Segoe (Bold)): https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Theming-Usage-of-the-quot-Segoe-Bold-quot-font/td-p/496531

I seem to have the exact same problem with the DIN font. The json file loads as it should, and the format box even says Font family: "DIN", but the numbers are actually showing up in Times New Roman. I'm using this for labels in column and bar charts. 

 

Any hints on how to fix this? I really don't think there are any good alternatives to DIN when it comes to data labels.

Re: Fontfamily DIN doesn't work in theme json

Thanks, but I obviously already know how to edit and import a json theme file, that's how I got here in the first place.

The problem is that this specific font family that I'm using won't work. 

Someone posted a workaround for the same issue with a different font family, I'm wondering if there is a similar solution to this!

Re: Fontfamily DIN doesn't work in theme json

Thanks, @v-yingjl, the first one of these addresses the same problem that I have (even mentions that it happens to Font family DIN, as well). So what I need is a syntax similar to this, only for DIN.

 

{"fontFace":"'Segoe UI Bold', wf_segoe-ui_bold, helvetica, arial, sans-serif"}
