What do you think of new icons from yuri (mezich)?
Do you have an idea of metaphor for 'open with'?

Also I'm not shure about "Copy to..." and "Move to..." because difference only in arrow color.

:) Hello !

• Please, could you provide some template¦s for these icons ? I mean to get the right order if it's a single bitmap, allowed sizes…
- And also plan means to change the skin in a future alpha ? When there is an INI file, preferably…
TIA !

Are "Church keys" universally recognized? Thats what they call the simplest can-openers on my side of the ocean. A better artist than me would need to imagine what kind of icon it could make...

• Just quickly made, maybe something like :

• It's 32² - 32 BPP. A 24² version is not a big deal to draw too, if you are interested in…

- Note : The transparency is not rendered correctly here on the board, that's usual with 32 BPP images,
so I added a version having a solid BG.

All tools…

:) Hello B. !

• My pic was drawn already when you posted, so…

• In my own skins, I used all similar tools :  Can-openers, corkscrew, even a crowbar :D
- Hence, yes, such motives are meaningful almost eveywhere, I guess.

"open with..." means "choose application", so can-opener etc it's not solution.

:) Hello !

• Just add "EXE" to such a symbol (like I did above), and it's getting meaningful… 8)

Thank you, for your effort in designing. :-) I like your icons.

Perhaps you add "..." or a question mark to the normal "Open" icon?

In menus "..." is an indicator that a dialog will follow before the action is performed (e.g. "Save as...").
