    I saw a couple discussions regarding converting the icon font over and specifying FontAwesome as the font face, instead of the existing... but is there anyway I could more easily make that change (so as to not have to worry about changing a bunch of css styles when the next fontawesome comes out).

    The out of box icon has too few icons. It'd be really nice if I could somehow say make this one change and now kendo is aware of font awesome's fonts.

    Hello Weston,

    It depends on the widget that you want to customize. Here are some examples that might help you:

    Is there anyway to request features for a future version? First class font awesoem support? I was trying to specifically use in a toolbar... and neither method worked for me. I even tried another post about manually adding custom styles to handle it, but that didnt work either (that looked to be specifically for mobile, so I didnt think it'd work anyway)

    Hello Weston,

    You can submit feature requests on UserVoice. The UserVoice items are regularly reviewed and discussed for future implementation.
