Can we add custom fonts (with file extension '.otf') in SSRS Reports? If yes then how?

    Hi @Neel Patel ,
    SSRS fully supports True Type Fonts (ttf) and has limited support for Open Type Fonts (otf). Essentially, any Font that can be instantiated by the .Net System.Drawing.Font (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system) class is supported by SSRS.

    1. Download .otf files.
    2. Install fonts on your development maschine (where you design your reports with Visual Studio).
    3. Install the fonts on the server where SSRS Service is running likewise
    4. Restart report server to make it recognize the fonts.
    5. If Visual Studio was open, you need to close and reopen it to use the new fonts.

    Note:
    Only Installing the font on the report server and then enabling the font embedding should do the magic.
    For font embedding, see this link: Exporting to a PDF File and Font Embedding.
    Best Regards,
    Joy
