Fonts Not Displaying as Expected After Publishing to Tableau Public or Tableau Online

Issue

When publishing a workbook to Tableau Public or Tableau Online, some fonts, such as Lucida Bright or Book Antiqua, do not display as expected. 
 

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Tableau Public
  • Tableau Online

Resolution

Use a font supported by Tableau Public and Tableau Online. The following list contains some of the supported fonts: 
  • Arial (bold, bold italic, and italic)
  • Courier New (bold, bold italic, and italic)
  • Georgia (bold, bold italic, and italic)
  • Tableau (bold, book, light, medium, semibold)
  • Times New Roman (bold, bold italic, and italic)
  • Trebuchet MS (bold, bold italic, and italic)
  • Verdana (bold, bold italic, and italic)

Cause

Tableau Public and Tableau Online support the fonts guaranteed to be available by default on Windows and Mac operating systems, so that dashboards will render correctly regardless of the client used to view them. Other fonts cannot be guaranteed to display as expected, since browser rendering of fonts depends on fonts being installed on both the server and client devices.
