Upload Your Custom Icon Set
Once you have generated and downloaded your custom font set, you now need to upload it to your website.
Back on the Edit Icon Set page, you will find a simple upload interface to upload your custom icon set. (There is also a shortcut to this page in any element that has the Icon Picker. Here you will find a Plus button in the top right corner of the Icon Picker, which takes you straight to the Custom Icon page.)
To upload a Custom Icon Set, simply give the Set a name, and then click on the Select File button. Navigate to your icon set (as a zip file) and select it.
Then just click Publish in the right hand side. This will load the Custom Icon set. If you need to update the set later on, there is an Update Custom Icon Set button you can use to reupload the set, as seen below. The icons will now be available through the Icon Picker, in their own tab.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you create an Icon Set from the Avada > Icon page, the set will be saved immediately, before you even add the icons. And when you add icons, the set is auto saved. If you add an Icon set through the Plus button in the Icon Picker or by clicking Add New when on the Edit Icon Set page, the set will be unpublished until you click Publish.
OK, that’s it. You can now return to the Global Options (Advanced > Features) and disable the Font Awesome Icon subsets. As you have a Custom Icon Set, these are now not needed.
To use your new Custom icon Set, head to any element that uses an icon, including the Icon Element. There, you will see any custom icon sets at the top of the icon picker, and you can now just choose the set and select icons from that.
