How to change spaces and font size in dashboard component



On Case Manager portal, the sidebar includes mywork list, team member, and workbaskets list.
How can you set the font of the text to a different one? And how do you set the row gap so that it's narrower?


This issue is resolved through the following local change:

How can you set the font to the text to a different one?

1) Update your application skin rule and create a new style format for the control used by the dashboard sidebar's list item.
For example if the control used is a text input, go to text input component in your skin rule and create a new style format there.
2) Set the style format to have the desired font (either choose a specific mixin or overide a mixin and set a specific font).
3) Customize the section used by the side bars, for example, pyWorkBasketDetail, set the pyLabel control to use the newly created control format.

How do you set the row gap so that it's narrower?
1)Update your application skin rule, go to dynamic layout.
Note:Out-of-the-box skin has a minimum item height to 40 px.
2)Choose which layout format is used by the section.
Note:Some layout extends from the Default layout format such as column layout. 
3)Set the minimum item height to a lower value.

Few additional steps are required to be done depending what customization has been done on your side bar.
