No More New Fonts may be Applied in this Workbook

In Microsoft Excel, sometimes when you add a new or existing chart to a workbook in you may receive the error message below:
No More New Fonts may be Applied in this Workbook

This problem is caused by Excel’s Auto scale setting. When adding a chart to a workbook, Excel automatically enables the Auto scale. The Auto scale forces the chart to use two or possibly more fonts instead of one font.  As a result, you can very quickly exceed the maximum number of fonts (512) allowed in Excel when adding multiple charts.  If you add charts manually or if you copy and paste existing charts, you can reach the font limitation for a workbook.

To prevent this problem from occuring you could disable the Autoscale setting.

  1. Select the chart.
  2. In the Format menu, select Selected Chart Area.
  3. Select the Font tab.
  4. Unselect the Autoscale check box.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Repeat the above for multiple charts that you may have.

    Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good
