Update and Create Necessary Icons
Open, LowPublic


There are many operators and other interface element across the board that need either updated icons or new icons entirely. Often this is due to duplicate usage of the same icon (such as Render and OpenGL Render).

This is a parent task to begin collecting tasks for necessary icon updates.

Note: we do not currently have an icon designer that's available, and so I've set this to low priority until we're able to give it some real attention. If you wish to take a shot at icons feel free to submit patches for review.



The first subtask would need to be a list of needed icons. It's hard to take a shot at making them without an idea what icons to make in the first place.

@Matjaž Lamut (lamoot) I had the same problem, so I created this list myself just as I mentioned to @Paweł Łyczkowski (plyczkowski)

Probably it would be a better idea to place this table somewhere else, not in a comment like this, because afaik I'm the only one beside the Module Owners who can change it afterwards, however at least we have one now.

These are the Icons have to be done ASAP for the 2.70+ release

This is a great list @petevaro! I think what would be best is to split this table up into relevant sections per task.

For example, one task and one table for:

  1. Edit Mode Toolbar: Tools tab
  2. Object Mode Toolbar: Relations tab
  3. Delete Menu

And so on.

Thank you @Jonathan Williamson (carter2422)! Next time I update this list (hopefully tomorrow) I will split it into sections just as you mentioned.

BTW I thought about this when I created the table but the different segments are going to have different widths, that's why I unified the table into one :)

Just a comment on an existing icon.
The modifier icon for 'particle system' and 'particle instance' are the same.
What I propose would be for particle instance the use of a colour for the the main star and darkening a bit the 3 others.
I don't know if it's going to work I'll try do attach the modified files.
This one is an svg file taken from the original file with the 3 small stars desaturated and the big one saturated blue.

The second one has the 3 small stars shaded darker.

Hope this works if not here are the pngs.

T53253 mentions a duplicate icon for Snap onto itself and Limit selection to visible buttons in the 3D view header.
