Every time after Label.Text changed, the font is changing to standard (when it was previously set to custom in LabelRenderer, using TypeFace Property).

Hi Maria,

If I understand this well, you're doing a custom renderer based on android's LabelRenderer, and at some point you set the TypeFace directly in the renderer to something of your own.

In the current LabelRenderer, every time the Text, FormattedText, Font or TextColor is changed, we reset all the properties. It's a choice we had to make to support some special scenarios and fix bugs on some android versions. As such, it doesn't qualify as a bug.

You can workaround this easily in your renderer, by overriding OnElementPropertyChanged:

	protected override void OnElementPropertyChanged (object sender, PropertyChangedEventArgs e)
		base.OnElementPropertyChanged (sender, e);

		if (e.PropertyName == Label.TextColorProperty.PropertyName)
			SetTypeFace ();
		else if (e.PropertyName == Label.FontProperty.PropertyName)
			SetTypeFace ();
		else if (e.PropertyName == Label.TextProperty.PropertyName || e.PropertyName == Label.FormattedTextProperty.PropertyName)
			SetTypeFace ();
