Wyn Enterprise: Add Font

Wyn Enterprise offers a huge variety of built-in fonts for use in your dashboards and reports. You might also want to use your own font to personalize the user experience, promote branding, and so on.

Typically, there are two ways in which you can add a font on the Resource Portal. You can either import the font file from your local system or specify the web URL for the font file. The below section describes the steps to add a font in the Resource Portal by importing the font file from a local system, for use in a dashboard or a report.

The following image illustrates the supported web browsers for the different font formats in Wyn Enterprise.

    Note: To use custom fonts, the report needs to read the original name of the font file. However, the original font names for all the font files cannot be read correctly. Therefore, in such cases, you can manually edit the original names for the font files in the Info panel as shown.
