Why is CSS is not loaded for my dashboard?

Hello,

I am trying to load the following CSS for my dashboard:
I am running this from my APP_HOME:

$ cat appserver/static/dashboard.css
     .section-title {
        font-size: 90px;
      }
     .panel_row1_col .layoutCell {
             width:1px !important;
     }
     .panel_row1_col .firstCell {
             width:800px !important;
     }

And here is the beginning of my dashboard and default.xml that I changed also:

$ head -n 1 default/data/ui/views/operator_dashboard.xml
<dashboard hideEdit="false" hideFooter="true" hideSplunkBar="true" hideAppBar="true" stylesheet="dashboard.css">

$cat default/data/ui/nav/default.xml
<nav search_view="search" color="#65A637">
  <view name="operator_dashboard" default='true' stylesheet="dashboard.css"/>
  <view name="dashboards" stylesheet="dashboard.css" />
</nav>

The CSS is there in my browser:
alt text

But it looks like it is not applied.
What can I do wrong please ?
Thank you very much

i don't think you can reference stylesheet in the nav default.xml file.
I don't see any examples here (however, i could be wrong).

dashboard.css is the default that is already applied - are you trying to add to it or replace it ?
try naming your dashboard.css something else.

have you restarted splunkweb, $SPLUNK_HOME/splunk/bin/splunk restart splunkweb since you uploaded the css file?

lastly, look at the answer here by rocket66, which i think is relevant.

This made it. Here is a quick feedback:
default.xml does not have to be touched indeed.
dashboard.css name works well.
service splunk restart also restarts splunkweb so that was not the problem.
I changed the CSS to the one given by rocket66 and it was actually used.
So, the problem was my CSS.
