Default font style not applied on older platforms <4.0.4

See original GitHub issue

I test the calligraphy styled application on a older android 4.0.4 (GT-P7100) with the result that the font is not applied. It seems that the default definition isn’t applied which i have declared in this way:

    <style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar">
        <item name="android:textAppearance">@style/LightTextAppearance</item>

    <style name="LightTextAppearance" parent="android:TextAppearance">
        <item name="fontPath">fonts/LightWeb.ttf</item>

This worked fine so far on other devices and api level. What can i do further solving this issue?

I had exactly this set, but without effect. I changed the font right now, and now it works as expected. Seems the font is the problem. The font can just set in the styles to work.

Yes, thank you for caring!
