Icons Color Consistency

Hi,

Can somebody start to rework on icons color & style ? to make it more consistent.
See below images, All general in cyan, Polyon in Teal, Nurbs in Green, and so on.

Note: I am not forcing to use below colors only but atleast same color for same task will make life much easier .

And please use flat color icon so that it will look goods on high DPI monitor also.

Thank you

Hi muller,

Hi muller,

Yes. That would be the next step of evolution i guess. We haven't started the process to redesign the icons yet. The last two years of work was to add the icons at all.

Bforartists is open source, and "somebody" could be you. We are happy about every helping hand :)

In case you want to have a crack at it, the icon sheet can be found in the Bforartists repository. The blender_icons.svg with the single icons can be found in the release/datafiles/ path. You need Inkscape to modify the file. To add the changed icons into the software requires some further changes at the source code, and compiling it then. But this task could be done by somebody else.

Kind regards

Reiner

Great news. I will set your account to developer. But beware, we have over 1200 icons now :)

There's a C file that defines and lists the available icons. And in Bforartist you can check the code of what icon is used. That way you can orient better in the icon sheet. I have separated the code to match the lines in the iconsheet.

The C file is UI_icons.c, and is located here: https://github.com/Bforartists/Bforartists/blob/master/source/blender/ed...

For checking the code and to find out the name of the icon, switch to scripting layout, right click at a button, and choose Edit source. The text editor should open the code with this button and the used icon. And with this icon name you can find it in the sheet then. This method does just work with icons in the python code though ...

I made the icons first with Gimp as bitmaps, and converted them to vector graphics when done. My collection of those bitmap files is a big mess though. Highly unorganized, i added folders when i had finished something. And i guess you want to redesign the one or another icon too. So i am not sure if it is of use for you.

Nice one Muller. I think the colour coding on icon groups is a great idea.

Great. I hope it's of use for you Smile

Mh, as a side note, the matcap icons at the end of the file is nothing from the icon sheet. The icon sheet ends with the row 30 at line 1971

And there are placeholder lines. Everything inside of the #ifndef DEF_ICON_BLANK_SKIP does not exist. That's an empty place
