Re: [libreoffice-documentation] Icon Set for Guides


Hi Dave

Thanks for explaining.
I think it is a good idea using Tango for the Guides.
Using the default is less good, because in the past the default did change sometimes.
So "our default" might not be the future default.

Regards, Kees

Reviewing "Introducing Draw" I notice that Vipul updated icons and
that icons diver from what I see.
Of course icons are depending on the Icon Set you use. For the
consistency it is best for all to use the same Icon Set for the
Guides. I can’t find anything about it in the Guide Template. Are
there agreements about which Icon Set to use for the Guides?

Kind regards,
Kees

For example: the Dutch documentation team is using "Karase Jaga",
because it is a nice clear Icon Set.

The very outdated Chapter 2 "Producing LibreOffice User Guides" of the
Documentation Contributors Guide reads:
<Q>
The setting for one View option (Icon size and style) is important for
consistency when capturing screens to illustrate our documents.
Go to Tools > Options > LibreOffice > View and make sure the choices for
Icon size and style in the User Interface section near the top are set
to Small, Tango.
If you are using Ubuntu or another Linux distribution and the icon style
drop-down list does not show Tango as one of the choices, go into the
distribution’s package manager and install the libreoffice-style-tango
package.
</Q>

I don't believe there has been any discussion on this subject in recent
times, but for my contributions I have used the default install icon
set, which in the case of LO 6.2.x & 6.3.x on Windows 10 is Colibre.

Although it is not my personal preference, I feel that we should use the
default icon set, since this is what most new users will see and more
experienced users are likely to understand LO has various icon sets.

Dave
