Hi, When publishing dashboards there is an option to go for 'automatic' located bottom left side "Dashboard Size" of your Desktop dashboard, see what has been given there. There are various options available including separate options for ipads and laptops, etc..
If the users or the context of the dashboards are more on ipads or hand-held, I would opt for the relevant one, else, automatic should work fine which would take care of all the generic purposes of display in the devises.
Let me know if this helps or more of your findings, if any.
Murali: I believe she is asking about the font type, not the size.
Allison--Are you using any non-typical fonts? I'm not sure if the Ipad is limited to certain fonts, or anything like that, but I would certainly experiment with different fonts and see if you can find any consistency between platforms.
I believe it is due to the HMTL 5 canvas rendering implementation. I also believe you can force client side or server side rendering.
I could be wrong.
Possible Matt, I look forward for Allison's comment from even Allan's perspective.

Hi Allison --
I came across this post when searching for something else. But I'm curious if you ever resolved this issue?
What font were you using in the original image?
From reading this and this, it seems Tableau doesn't embed fonts in the viz and, therefore, if your client OS doesn't have native support for the font, it'll default to some common denominator, like Arial or Times New Roman.
In the dashboard development, give the ipad portrait or ipad landscape, then the font cant change while u using in the ipad.

I did not resolve the issue, but I think the solution (although not the best news) is in the first link you posted. In order for both devices to appear the same, we must select a font that is compatible with both windows and mac.
Unfortunately, the font I was using was brand-specific to the client and specifically chosen for that reason. I will likely leave it as is since this will mostly be viewed on a desktop/laptop.
Thanks for the find!
Cool. Thanks for the update.
