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:

custom style font

  2. Select the label you want to change.

  3. Click the + button.

    The system displays the Custom Font dialog.

  4. Click the Custom Font field.

    The system displays the file finder.

  5. Add the WOFF file you want.

    The file appears in the font dialog

  6. Click Save to change the 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 of where they appear.

Consider how the links open, by type:

Link in search result table in ThoughtSpot

Same browser tab as ThoughtSpot application.

Link in table embedded in an <iframe>

Same <iframe> that contains the table.

Link in full ThoughtSpot application embedded in an <iframe>

Same <iframe> that contains the application.
