Hi Björn, all,

Hi Christoph, all.

just a quick comment: I really like the design - but the metaphor for
templates is not convincing and does not work in small sizes. I would again
like to bring in the idea of inverting the icon, which is as close to the
mental model of a template (german: Schablone, Schema) as my mind brings me

I tried to do a quick draft of what you suggested (it's quite quick and very dirty if you would have a look at the source), inverting the interior area of the template icons, but I kept the rip-off metaphor too:

For reference the link to Christoph's icons:

We don't have much time left to create the icons, if they should be included in the final release of LibO 3.3.0, so we should define quite fast where to go.

I think both proposals have their advantages - the inverted icons look quite dark, but are easier to differ from the document icons.

I don't know if they really follow the general visual language of the other icons...

What do you think?

Best regards


(who starts working on the Draw document icon)

If anybody else would try his/her skills on the Master Doc (just put the symbols of four Writer icons or the full icons together on the main application icon), this would already help a lot!
