How to specify font for Preformatted in Scroll PDF Exporter?

Preformatted (<pre>) text appears in the body font in the PDF. How do I specify an appropriate monospace font? I uploaded SourceCodePro and added the following to the content formatting CSS, but it had no effect:

div.programlisting div pre {
font-family: SourceCodePro;

I find no other reference to pre in the default CSS. The following had no effect, either:

code, pre { font-family: SourceCodePro; }

Also, there appears to be a bug in the <pre> output, the first line appears at the end of the previous paragraph.

Hi Robert,

we've had a bug in the Scroll PDF Exporter regarding the output of preformatted content:
It will be implemented in Scroll PDF Exporter 3.0, which we will release at the beginning of next week.

Hope this information helps.


I'll test 3.0 when it's available, thanks.

Installed 3.0. <pre> is now Courier in the PDF, so that's fixed.

How do I specify a different font for <pre> and <code>? Do I need to create a custom template as discussed here?
