Hi There,

Font Awesome (the icon font) works in Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign but not XD - is there a trick to getting it to work with XD?

Also, does XD have a Glyphs panel? If not, a Glyphs panel is kind of mandatory, may I please request one?

Cheers

Ben

The font seems to be working just fine for me.  I followed the instructions here - Font Awesome: How to use Font Awesome icons in Photoshop or Illustrator – Iftakhar's Web Design/Development Blog e.g. Selectively grabbed the icons I wanted from - Font Awesome Cheatsheet .There is no glyphs panel just yet.

You have to import 'font-awesome' fonts into your system Fonts folder.

Windows: Control Panel -> Fonts

Mac: ~/Library/Fonts/
