Put your font file inside your /Android/data/verbosus.verbtex/files/Local/name-of-project folder and reference it in your document:

Excellent editor! I complained about not having Biber support and the developer answered immediately pointing me to the settings which I confused with the preference in the editor view. Perhaps add a link to the global settings in there? Anyways, thanks so much! :)

Each time a generate preview is used, the app writes a single pdf to its internal sandbox folder. Fine. But, the default device pdf reader opens to read the file and write a new pdf somewhere (in my case to the download folder), causing multiple pdf's with the same name. Mostly just annoying. There may be a user side solution. I haven't found it.

Thank you for your report. The name of the PDF is the name of the project which will be overwritten when generating a PDF. Please check your PDF viewer for any issues when opening files as we don't have access to this. Please contact us directly if you have any questions.

What's new

* Cloud Mode: Support complex project structure like in Local Mode
* Bugfix: Crash due to Autofillmanager
