Harley Acheson (harley) added a comment to T69992: Shortcuts for Tools (design task).

Hmmm, although... seeing that "Alt", "G", "R", and "S" makes me think it might be nice to have outline and background color added to uiFontStyle. Might be a better way of doing that than the event icons since those have to be fixed width.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) - yes, thanks! Wasn't trying to shit on it, just trying to think it through.

I'm sure you have thought of this, but as described there might be some issues caused by toolbars being per-editor, while the status bar is global. And other related problems caused by the leader key being a press rather than a hold.

Does these files display correctly if your turn on our international font? Edit / Preferences / Interface. And just click the checkbox for "Translation". No need to select a different language. Just turning on that checkmark swaps out the font we use for a fancier one that contains more characters, including Hindi.

@Harley Acheson (harley) a little bug,
if I change the color of the icon and save a theme, it remains saved in the theme, but when I restart blender, the folders icon turns yellow as default.
to restore the theme folders color, I have to reselect the theme.

I'm not sure if I like the color too much. It does still seem a bit too saturated and/or a tad too brownish. Just to be sure: You didn't just test this with a color managed display, or did you?

Harley Acheson (harley) added a comment to T69455: New File Browser UI is listing incorrect file sizes.

The central issue is that the various platforms are not in agreement with how to show abbreviated file sizes. The terms many of us use, like "megabyte", has always been ambiguous in whether it is in base2 or base10. So on each platform the users have a different idea of what a "megabyte" is.

Why not change the width of the active versus inactive scrollbar? This way you can get away with a narrower gutter since it would look okay to have the active scrollbar take the entire gutter space.
