As a Wireframe Designer I would like to be able to use custom assets that I import inline in my text controls so that the icon layout is more accurate.
It is great that we are able to use any of the Font Awesome icons in a text control by wrapping the name of the icon in colons :like-this: However, I am working on a wireframe that uses icons that are standard across our application but aren’t included in the Font Awesome Library. I have imported them as assets and they show up in the icon library under the Assets category but when I try to wrap the name of the icon in colons and use it in a text control (like a data grid) I can’t do it.
I understand that I can leave some space for the icon blank and drag the custom asset in on top of the control later but that gets too annoying because I have to move the icon every time the text in the control change so that it lines up with the space I left again which takes ages and often leads to the icon being out of alignment.
As a work around I use a similar looking Font Awesome Icon and have the actual on listed in my notes about the wireframe but that is still not ideal.
Any chance you could fix it so I can use custom assets as icons in text controls?
