And another topic…

:) Hello !
…On the other hand, if you only pick up the colours 1-5, from that scale, they are not far from the other alternatives discussed here (brown, red, orange, yellow, green). Was it perhaps this you meant?…
• Yes, it's that I meant. It could be something like this   Image  with "zero" at left. Can be split into 16² icons…

• In fact, the French thread is about another topic where the classic colour-code could be useful (and which needs a complete code from "0" up to "9", plus some neutral colour(s) for separators when the same colour is needed several times).
• The subject is a proposal : A specialized tool-bar to open the options pages¦paragraphs directly.
- The start-message shows such a bar in Total Commander with 24² (home-made) icons. It's the bar #3 of five…
- It can't be done in XnView yet, at least like I showed; this needs an improved design of the tool-bar.
- Also command-numbers available to configure such a bar.
- The trick is that I draw the special icons with these numbers as code to save room on the icons ;)
- Only choosing the icon, you get the command, it's fast and convenient.
- I don't despair to get something like this l a t e r…… :P … while I've this in Total Commander for years already ! :D

:mrgreen: Kind regards,
Claude

I did not mean to remove colors form Ratings, just bring Labels (colors) into attention.

I like those ideas, although I would prefer a fixed width icon with increasing filling, a bit like what Gerhard did here (I also like his color explanation).

It's clear, but not very nice and too wide. If we'd choose wide icons, than rahter stars - 1 - 5 stars, it would looks better and it will be clear for everyone.

E.g.:

Of course it should be smaller.

I thought we agreed - more or less - on those colours.

In Beta 5, we have:

I don't like it too much, because Purple gets back to a warmer feeling and Green(=Go) opposed to Red(=No Go) is quite widespread.

More opinions?
