Hi Christoph, all,

just to inform you with a short notice:

I tried to create a small image to be added to the Writer icon.

Please have a look here - it is just a very first draft...

I uploaded a new version to the same file (if it still looks the same, please refresh your browser cache...).

Some more ideas to improve it:

* Text lines length and spacing (showing header - perhaps still over the
image -, more distance between paragraphs and so on).

If the larger icon is going to have more lines, then I would recommend
that they be justified so that the right border of the image lines up
with the end of each line of text.

Done - except of the last line in every paragraph.

Also, the width disparity between the image border (thin) and text
(chunky) is a little jarring: we have a rectangle with high detail
contained in it surrounded by blocky, low-detail elements. I would
suggest something similar to the new high-res OOo 3.3 icon in terms of
design [1].

It is not as detailed as in the 256px version you refer to. But the 128px version in is a bit more comparable.

My picture is smaller to prioritize the text (same reason not to use columns). The picture itself is detailed enough for 256px icons - perhaps we need to reduce the contrast between dark and light (snowy) areas on the mountains.

Best regards
