0.84b1: Draw tool: Icon "Draw" looks like "Delete"

Postby helmut » Sun Nov 20, 2016 10:37 pm

XnView MP 0.84 beta 1

In the toolbar of the view mode, the "Draw" icon for the new draw tool has been added. This "Draw" icon looks much like the delete icon. This possible mismatching with the important "Delete" function should be avoided.

Just the pencil, from top-right to bottom-left [rotated 90º clock-wise] ?

Nice to read from you, Yuri! :-) Nice icon designs for the draw tool. Could you perhaps include your three drafts in the standard toolbar to see what it looks like? It will be easier to decide, then.

Nice work, Mezich
I agree with No. 2 being the one to use but the first isn't bad either

I think it's best to judge about a draft design when seeing it in action:
Icon A:
Draw-Toobarl-Paint-1a.png


Icon B:
Draw-Toobarl-Paint-1b.png


Icon C:
Draw-Toobarl-Paint-1c.png


Until now, I like Icon A best. Icon A looks very different to the other icons and the pen is easy to recognize.

In hitherto existing symbols you (Mezich) have used a small brown image with a hill and a sun as an anlogy for the image (see symbols "Resize" and "Crop"). Could you perhaps make one more draft using this analogy?

With this direction, brush will be better. But I don't think that is good idea. Icon should reflect what you can do wity this Paint tool. That's because I chose #2

O.k., so let's use your draft #2.

Fixed in 0.84 beta 3: Icon #2 is used for "Draw".
