Another beginner's question.
I have a certain font that I need to use.
Where do I put his files?
And how do I set it to be the default font of the entire application?

You can set the font with the designer. Add the font file to the designer files and then switch the Typeface.

You can also do it programmatically:
B4X:
Dim fnt As Typeface  = Typeface.CreateNew(...)
For Each v As View In Activity.GetAllViewsRecursive
   If v Is Label Then
       Dim lbl As Label = v
       lbl.Typeface = fnt
   End If
Next
This exact code will work with EditText, Button, Label, CheckBox, RadioButton and ToggleButton as well as they are subtypes of label.

Thanks. I'll try it.
But is there a way to determine that this font will be the default?
After all, the controls are created in the designer with the value at default
and not with a reference to a particular font.

Replace that with the base theme you are using for your app. If you cant figure it out then post your manifest.
