    The default font for charts, as far as I can tell from the documentation, is 12px Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif. I would like to change the default font family to Tahoma. I want this to hit everything from legends, titles, to labels.

    Is there a way to do this? I can't see anything in the CSS that seems to reference this.

    Hello Conor,

    There is no default value for the font property of the chart. If you want to change the font you need to override it. For example:
    title: {
        font: "yourFont"
    legend: {
        labels: {
            font: "yourFont"

    Kind regards,
