    Post CDE - external CSS file being overwritten by Pentaho component CSS


    I am a new user to the Pentaho Platform and I am growing to love it - mainly using CDE.

    I have an issue with using an external CSS file. I want to style the Pentaho components to match the rest of the site I will be embedding the dashboards into. However, the component CSS files (button component for example) overwrites my own CSS classes. I've looked into the code that is rendered out and it looks as though requireJS loads my CSS first, and then the component CSS file after, obviously overwriting it.

    I have found a work around, which is to use the code snippet option for CSS files instead of external file as it loads the CSS in script tags. But obviously that isn't ideal for code reuse.

    What step/s have I missed in getting my CSS file to work?

    Thanks for your time,

    Order is irrelevant. Just make sure you specify a stronger CSS rule than the component has
