How to specify fonts

You can set your systems default fonts by specifying either or both of the Chart Visualization Fonts and Table Visualization Fonts values. To set this values, your font must be defined in a Web Open Font Format (WOFF) file.

Changes to chart and table defaults apply only to charts and features created after you configure a value. If you change table fonts, older tables retain their previous fonts. Some settings can be overridden on a per-object level. Users cannot configure their own defaults.

To set a new font:

There is a system-wide setting which determines what happens when a user clicks on a link within the data. When your data includes URLs, they display as clickable links in ThoughtSpot tables. By default, clicking on a link opens the URL in a separate tab. But there is a system-wide setting that can be changed to open the links within the context in which they appear.

Changing this setting opens the links:
