Invalid resource directory name “font” Xamarin Android

BrunoVTBrunoVT BEUniversity ✭✭

I just upgraded Visual Studio for mac to support Android 8 / api 26. I updated the AppCompat library to 26.1 to use the new font folder in the Resources directory of my Android project. Now when I try to compile I get "Invalid resource directory name" for path "obj/Debug/res/font" APT0000.

    I have a similar problem that I cannot understand. Following the offficial xamarin android documentation I defined a font family in Resources but I cannot use this family in xml styles.
    No resource identifier found for attribute 'fontWeight' in package...
    It is a Xamarin Forms project that targets only android, compiled with the Android 8.1 SDK
    Where I can find a working example that uses fonts as resources??
