Adding fonts to Control Pages font library

How can I add more fonts to the Control Pages library? I did a search within the indigo folder and found the fonts being referenced in the indigodb file which I cracked open but I didn't want to mess around until I asked the question.

You really shouldn't - those fonts are hard coded. You might theoretically be able to change them but the results would likely be unexpected (and definitely wouldn't work in Indigo Touch).

We do have a feature request to allow that to be changed but of course no ETA on if/when we would get to it.

I wanted to see if this was still in the works. Even if something like Google Fonts were included, that would go a LONG way towards improving the control pages. As a web developer, it pains me to use system fonts! :lol:

Hi Chris,

It is still on the feature request list, but we don't have any ETA for when it will be available. I do agree the font choices are very limited currently.

Would it be easier to just let us specify a CSS file for the control pages?

Only for browser viewed Control Pages. Indigo Touch uses a custom renderer (not HTML).

That would still be ok, it's progress.

I have managed to modify the css files in place, but it's very difficult to write selectors for the various elements as they do not have ids.

And of course chances are they will be overwritten on the next update.
