How to set the Font

Can the font be set via AppManager?
https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/roAppManager
The Application Manager APIs set application level attributes, which mostly affect the look-and-feel of the application. The use of screen styles gives each application a consistent look-and-feel, but it's often desirable to customize attributes such as colors, fonts, and logos for each application.

This is a "yes" or "no" question, I wonder why no one will answer?

I am not aware about fonts being ever settable by roAppManager, so i assume the docu-mentat-or misspoke.

Re: How to set the Font

roAppManager can control the color of the system font in some pre-Scenegraph components, but not the font itself. If you really want to set a font you would need to use SceneGraph, roScreen or roImageCanvas screen types and load a .TTF or .OTF font in your app or download it to tmp:/ before instantiating it.

Re: How to set the Font

thank you - was looking to change the size and type in an existing application that uses roAppManager.
