Larger Icons

Post by pencoe » 19 Apr 2016, 13:16

Especially on my high dpi devices (4k 27" display and 4k 15" Laptop display) the icons of AS are very small even with scaling: in would like to see the option to choose between icon sets of different sizes for the toolbar(s) (and maybe different designs?!?)

I do not see any reason not to go in SVG icons.

There are quite a few simple C++ libraries to rasterize SVG to PNG format. So, not only DPI but users size of icon is once and for all solved.

Some cute SVG icons: http://icons8.github.io/flat-color-icons/ :wink:

To clarify: i'm speaking of the icons on the toolbars... not the program icons.

Yes, we know. We are moving toolbar icons (and other GUI items such as drop-down arrows) to SVG graphics rendered with Nano SVG library https://github.com/memononen/nanosvg

Nano SVG is very limited SVG renderer, just enough to render icons. So it is not a good candidate for viewer engine.
