Hi @Anurag

Two things spring to mind here as it looks like the font that Power BI is displaying in your screenshot is times new roman:

  1. You don’t have that font installed on your system, or
  2. you’ve encountered the last caveat as mentioned in this article Custom fonts in Power BI - everything you wanted to know! - Data Mozart (

Hopefully, you can get things going from here :slight_smile:

Kind regards


Hi ,

I have installed the font in my computer as you can see in the below screenshot but still its not picking the font am i doing some thing wrong.


Did you see this note in the article and apply the workaround as suggested?

One more important thing to keep in mind : if you manually change the font of the visual once you open your .pbix file, BEFORE importing the theme, and then import the theme, changes will not be applied! I don’t know if it is a bug or what, but let me show you what’s the issue:

How to set json if i want to use X format for all title and Y format for all the visual and it value in report.


The theme generator mentioned in the article would give you a custom set of JSON which you could then modify to match what you’re wanting to do. It looks like it covers the areas you want to customise.

Power BI Theme Generator

Otherwise, I’d recommend the MS Documentation to find the JSON field you need to add - it’s an extensive list of options…
