Adding Font Awesome to Individual Binder Tabs
If you prefer not to add the same Font Awesome icon to all the Binder Tabs, but prefer to assign unique icons to each individual tab then do not select “Font Awesome On” in the customization options, but rather manually install Font Awesome and insert into the Binder Tabs manually (the next 2 steps).
Step 1. Install Font Awesome as outline in this tutorial.
Step 2. For step 5 place the HTML code inside the Binder Tabs text.
