Type: Feature Request
Provide font styles as static resources
We are building an application based with an Office 2013 look/feel.
It would be great if there were resources that allowed us to use appropriate font sizes, families, etc within out controls.

For example, a backstage header font size and family ...

Currently the values provided in the "Palette" do not complete the picture.

Reason for declination: 
The XAML team has reviewed this issue and will not be addressing it as we are not sure about the exact scenario. 

If you want to share additional requirements about this request please contact us through the support ticketing system with details and a reference to this item.

Currently we do not plan to implement such functionality because you can achieve the needed by applying custom styles which is the native approach for the WPF platform. Then you will need to modify the FontSize and FontFamily properties in setters if applicable or set a custom control template if you need to modify a specific element in it. You can always rely on our help in such process of customizations. 

You can also check our Color Theme Generator:
where you can play with the palette colors and see the change run-time. We are planning to add such tool for WPF where changing FontSize and FontFamily will be also available. Unfortunately we can commit a specific time-frame for it. 

Overall we are not sure about your exact scenario. Could you please open a support ticket where we can discuss your requirements?
