Based on these docs one can use a custom font without a custom renderer for Android in Xamarin.Forms. I tried this approach, with a custom font and system fonts, the font is not recognized. I included the font within the
Assets folder and made sure "Build Action" is "AndroidAsset" and "Copy to output directory" is set to "Always Copy".
I referenced the font like this:
var fontFamily = Device.OnPlatform( "Comic Sans MS", "Comic Sans MS.ttf#Comic Sans MS", null ); label1.FontFamily = fontFamily; label2.FontFamily = fontFamily;
Has anybody a working sample, the one in the docs is clearly not working for me?
