Last Published: April 25, 2020


Avenir Next is the default font used in Infographics. However, with some combinations of Windows 10 and Internet Explorer, the default font in Infographics is changed to Times New Roman.  The use of Times New Roman is purely an esthetic issue and there are no functionality problems in the infographic panels.To display Avenir Next font in Infographics, users can make a Windows Registry key change highlighted below. This change disables the blocking of untrusted fonts for ArcGIS Pro.

There is risk associated with this change, which is discussed in the link below. Specifically:
“Blocking untrusted fonts helps prevent both remote (web-based or email-based) and local EOP attacks that can happen during the font file-parsing process.” Block untrusted fonts in an enterprise


The instructions below include making changes to essential parts of your operating system. It is recommended that you backup your operating system and files, including the registry, before proceeding. Consult a qualified computer systems professional, if necessary.

Esri cannot guarantee results from incorrect modifications while following these instructions. Therefore, use caution and proceed at your own risk.

To disable the untrusted fonts blocking for ArcGISPro:

  1. Open the Windows Registry Editor.
  2. Create key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\ArcGISPro.exe
  3. Create MitigationOptions QWORD value = 3000000000100
Existing MitigationOptions values should be saved during your update. For example, if the current value is 1000, your updated value should be 3000000001000.
