  1. Hey Jens. Just wanted to say your tool is awesome and I love the integration into SceneBuilder. I wish there were some more graphic options (specifically math related ones) – but thats not your department. Great job.

  2. Hello,

    I have noticed that when using CSS like this: where fa-info-circle is defined as

    The second class specified should be able to override some things however it does not. I wish it to override the -fx-fill and -glyph-size but it does not. I have to specifically do it in the “Style” setting which works, but I do not like.

    I don’t know if you can possibly fix this but please do :)?
