  • 1.  Change Font of IBM Cognos Analytics and all reports

    Posted Thu November 24, 2022 03:29 AM
    Hi everyone,

    is it possible to change the font of the IBM Cognos Analytics page (including teamconent, own content, welcome page) and all reports (includings lists, crosstabs, visualisations etc) globally? Our company has a new font and I am trying to implement it into Cognos Analytics.


    Best regards!

    Hi Stefan,

    The first thing to do is to add the font to your Cognos environment:
    https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/cognos-analytics/11.2.0?topic=fonts-add-cognos-environment

    Then, you would have to change many css files in order to have a new default font.

    Best regards,

    Hi @Stefan Milanovic,

    this was possible with some work in 10.x by changing globalstyles.css ... but it's not feasible in 11.x

    There is no such thing like "use corporate fonts" instead of "IBM Helvetica".

    I have been struggling with this for years. @GREG MCDONALD knows the details ;-)
