Hi, I'm using Raleway font (available on google web fonts) in my gnome-shell but I can't setup the font in the top bar, I tried adding the font-family in /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/gnome-shell.css and /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/gdm.css in some #panel tags but is not working, do you know what's the correct place for this? I'm also changed this on tweak tool on fonts and it change the gtk font in the apps but not in the top bar.

Thanks for the theme is really nice.
