# Steps to reproduce
- Create a Xamarin.Forms project
- Add a Font static resource with FontAttributes set
- Set XamlCompilation to XamlCompilationOptions.Compile for the XF assembly
- Compile the XF PCL project
# Expected behavior
# Actual behavior
Build failes with:
No property, bindable property, or event found for 'FontAttributes' XamLab
# Supplemental info (logs, images, videos)
# Test environment (full version information)
- Visual Studio 2015
- Windows 10
- Xamarin.Forms 188.8.131.52
FontAttributes is not a settable property, so this will never work, with or without XamlC on.
The correct way to declare a Font in Xaml, be it as a resource or as a property value is to rely on the TypeConverter and define it as a string.
