Unable to change font family of chart elements from Calibri to Aktiv Grotesk

Hi Team,

Aspose Cells Version : 21.3.0

Using v21.3 cells jar the font-family of the chart elements is not changed from “Calibri” to 'Aktiv Grotesk".

Chart elements include : Series datalabels, legend, axis titles, chart title, axis labels

In the attached zip file provided the java code, input file used along with the generated outputs for the below two scenarios :

  1. AxesTitlesFontIssue
  2. DataLabelsLegendFontIssue

Note : The same font-family change is working properly with Aspose Cells 19.11 version

Could you please help us in understanding the reason for the font not changing from “Calibri” to “Aktiv Grotesk”.

Thanks in advance,

Please confirm if you have the underlying font (.ttf file(s)) “Aktiv Grotesk” installed on the system where you are processing the code? We did test your issue a bit and noticed the behavior. Please also, zip and attach the .ttf file(s) for the font “Aktiv Grotesk”, so we could install it and then evaluate your issue precisely on our end.

Hi Amjad,

Thanks for the quick check.

Yes, I confirm that the required (.ttf) files of “Aktiv Grotesk” font are available in the system where the shared test scenario codes are processed.

Please find the attached zip file for the (.ttf files).

Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the source font file(s).

After an initial test, I am able to reproduce the issue as you mentioned using your template file(s). I found the font of certain chart elements (e.g. horizontal axis title, vertical axis title, chart title, data labels, legend, etc.) is not changed from “Calibri” to “Aktiv Grotesk”. I have logged a ticket with an id CELLSJAVA-43449"" for your issue. We will look into it soon.

Once we have an update on it, we will let you know here.

Thanks Eric for the update.

Tested with the new version shared and could see that the “Aktiv Grotesk” font is now set for Chart datalabels, legend entries, axes titles and chart title.

But one question…
Is the version (21.4.5) the final one ?
Because the same version is not available in

Could you please confirm by when the fix will be officially released ?
