    ———–

    Currently, only way in UXPin to include FontAwesome icons is by using the FontAwesome Library icons.

    However – with introduction of the UXPin upload custom font – you can upload the latest FontAwesome release *.woff file.

    Next > open new Browser Tab and navigate to http://fontawesome.io/cheatsheet/ and locate the icon you require, then select only the icon itself (*not* the unicode) and copy to clipboard.

    Next > return to UXPin wireframe/prototype tab you were working in and in a text block paste the clipboard into the text string – you will only see a square(!), but by now selecting the square and going to Properties > Typography > Character and clicking the fonts dropdown button and selecting your uploaded custom font eg. “LatestFontAwesome” (whatever you called it) the icon will now render successfully in UXPin as a piece of typography.
