- Tableau Server
- Non-websafe fonts
Option 1:Try using a web safe font as these are commonly found on most operating systems. If the font you are using is web safe, but the issue is still occurring, confirm that the font is installed on all machines, as it may for some reason have been removed or corrupted.
Option 2:Install the desired font on all client machines and the machine (or machines) hosting Tableau Server.
CauseWhen Tableau Server does not have the specific font installed, it handles the sizing by using a fall-back default font, while it continues to send spacing information to the browser about the original font. This confusing behavior may lead to displays that are not working as intended.
Additional InformationNon-web safe fonts are those that may not be installed on all desktop and server machines by default. An example of a non-websafe font is Arial Narrow. However, Arial is considered web safe because you can be reasonably certain it is installed everywhere.
