I have added custom fonts to the project per the instructions here: https://blog.xamarin.com/custom-fonts-in-ios/
All of the fonts are in the root Resources directory, with "BundleResource" and "Copy always"
My Info.plist file has the following:
If I set elements to this font in code it works fine (e.g. MyButton.Font = UIFont.FromName("SST-Heavy", 22); )
However, if I open the storyboard in the Xamarin designer, the font doesn't show up in the font drop downs in the properties panel. Considering how images are supported in the storyboard, I don't understand why this doesn't work.
This is happening both in Visual Studio on Windows and Xamarin Studio on OSX
If I edit the storyboard XML to use the desired font, it works on device & simulator, but shows up as the regular system font in the designer (even in the properties panel).
It sounds like we need to add otf to the list of recognized font formats.
Thank you Matthew.
