Issue

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

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Tableau Public
  • Tableau Cloud

Resolution

Use a font supported by Tableau Public and Tableau Cloud. The following list contains some of the supported fonts: 
  • Arial 
  • Calibri
  • Courier New
  • Georgia 
  • Meiryo UI
  • Noto CJK Sans
  • Noto Thai Sans
  • Noto Thai Serif
  • Poppins
  • Roboto
  • Tableau 
  • Times New Roman 
  • Trebuchet MS 
  • Verdana 
Note: Some fonts may not display as expected when using the Safari browser.

Cause

Tableau Public and Tableau Cloud support fonts officially licensed for our Linux servers. 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.
