Hi @mark-steven-au,

Our <MDBIcon> and other components that use an icon prop are configured to work only with Font Awesome. If you want to add your custom icon you need to do on your own ( one of many ways: write your own icon component - maybe this documentation page helps you with that ).

Unfortunately, it's not possible to use MDBIcon or prop icon with your custom icons.

If you have more specific questions, don't hesitate to ask them

Best, Kuba
