Native Resources.

New playbook developer here working through some of the samples.

In GoodCitizen fonts are loaded from


 and also defined as available from


The example apperars to be using fonts included with the default files system but the only file system documention I can find so far is the  native/documentation/playbook.

This shows a file system simliar to unix but does not provide any detailed info on what native font resources are available.


Is there other documentation available?

Re: Native Resources.

Great thanks. I was hoping for a little more than the linux style crowdsource support but that may be the name of the game with this too!
