Step 1 - Configure Webpack

Make sure you have added an alias to DolittleStyles in your webpack config file. This is essential to make your component look for the settings file from your application, not only the settings file from Styles

const path = require('path');

process.env.DOLITTLE_WEBPACK_ROOT = path.resolve('.');
process.env.DOLITTLE_WEBPACK_OUT = path.resolve('./dist');
process.env.DOLITTLE_FEATURES_DIR = path.resolve('./Features');
process.env.DOLITTLE_COMPONENT_DIR = path.resolve('./Components');

const config = require('@dolittle/build.aurelia/webpack.config.js');

module.exports = () => {
    const obj = config.apply(null, arguments);


    obj.resolve.alias = {
        DolittleStyles: path.resolve(__dirname, './styles') // Add Alias to Webconfig
    return obj;

Step 2 - Custom Overrides

Add a scss file where you can put your overrides.

E.g Styles/Settings/NavigationView.scss

NavigationView.scss in file tree

Step 3 - Including Overrides

You need an all.scss in settings, and you should add your overrides there as well. Make sure that you import the original settings from Styles in this file as well. Then the component will get it all.
