> Hello Xamarin.Forms Community,
> Why doesn't Xamarin.Forms support custom Font's for various controls on the Android Platform?
> As a recap the current situation.
> (https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/xamarin-forms/user-interface/text/fonts/):
> iOS: Use the Font Name (Custom fonts that should be loaded are defined in info.plist).
> Android: Create a Custom renderer  or use the font name for a system font.
> WP: Use filelocation # fontname for a custom font, or use the font name for a system font.
> Something that could be implemented for Android so custom fonts is a supported feature across all platforms.
> We could parse the FontFamily property to determine if it's an filelocation/filename [myawesomefont.ttf/myawesomefont.otf]. If it is, we should load the font from that location, otherwise it's a normal font and we should use the current way of loading a font.
> It seems to be all that has to be changed is this:
> https://github.com/royvou/Xamarin.Forms/blob/android-customfont/Xamarin.Forms.Platform.Android/Renderers/FontExtensions.cs
> This shouldn't have a big impact on the codebase and not break existing apps.
> Thoughts?
> Roy
