WARNING in proc sgplot procedure

Hi everyone,

 

I use SAS University on Mac.  

 

SAS University was updated yesterday. When I use PROC SGPLOT procedure (very basic coding) today. It gave me a warning " WARNING: The font <sans-serif> is not available. Albany AMT will be used.".  It was no problem before. I think it is probably because of the updates. How can I add this font again? Or what can I do to get rid of the  WARNING message.

 

Here is the code.

proc sgplot data = ds1;
vbox var1;
title "title1" ;

 

Here is the LOG.

1 OPTIONS NONOTES NOSTIMER NOSOURCE NOSYNTAXCHECK;
72
73 proc sgplot data = ds1;
74 vbox var1;
75 title "title1" ;
76
77
78 OPTIONS NONOTES NOSTIMER NOSOURCE NOSYNTAXCHECK;
WARNING: The font <sans-serif> is not available. Albany AMT will be used.
WARNING: The font <sans-serif> is not available. Albany AMT will be used.
 

Thanks in advance .

There is a list of supported fonts here -> https://support.sas.com/software/products/university-edition/faq/limitations.htm i.e. Albany AMT Regular, Albany AMT Bold, Arial Unicode MS, and Cumberland AMT Regular. Whether this was different in earlier versions I couldn't say but I don't believe it's currently possible to add fonts to the UE environment because of its locked down state.

Hi all,

 

is there any news on this problem?

It is really frustrating - so many warnings, and all have to checked :-(

"WARNING: The font <sans-serif> is not available. Albany AMT will be used."

 

It is not only with proc sgplot - reg also and I would think some more.

 

Thx

Frank

With Times New Roman the graphs generated by SAS UE would be more neat...

The font errors were removed in the latest update to SAS UE http://support.sas.com/software/products/university-edition/faq/release_notes.htm
