After applying Windows 10 updates, when attempting to select a Tableau font from any Edit text window in Tableau Desktop, none of the Tableau fonts appear in the dropdown menu within the list of available font types. The default font shows listed as Tableau Book, but the text is not actually in the Tableau Book font.
Additionally, the first font in Tableau may be listed as "8514oem".
