Hi Bernhard,

I think the large 3D binder spirals are too prominent.  They distract me
from the document and seem to over-shadow the components of the LibreOffice

The holes are not prominent enough...

I am not able to try my hand at anything at the moment but I would recommend
you try horizontal binders, similar to the small icon.  Perhaps a gradient
can give the binders a 3D ring effect.  Horizontal binders might give us
some freedom to find that happy medium between too big and too small.  The "
Goldilocks <>"
size. :-)

Happy new year everyone!

Hi all, Christoph,

replying to this mail, because we discussed here the template symbols...

I like these binders, they have to be created in detail for the larger

For the small 16px icons I prefer Jaron's smaller binding because they
seem to be a bit better to discriminate.

I will have a look at it, again.

I tried to create some binders for the large detailed icons:

I'm not really satisfied with them:

The upper version (a) with binding spiral adds some 3D-effect that is not
present in the document icons. The binding spiral is very prominent.

The lower version (b) shows only the holes, but they are very similar to
the surrounding grey sheet.

Perhaps there might be a solution in-between, but I'd like to ask you
before I go on:

What do you think should be the way to go?

Best regards
