I think that file type icons sent to me by you will be great.

Interface graphics (small toolbar icons in fe. Writer) for me is also (for today) bad - this 
icons have too much colors and, some of them, too many detail (eg. "Paste", "Font color"). This 
icons should be clear to understand and simple in design. Some of them have "cold" colors and 
others have more colors (eg. "Increase indent" [mainly white and dark blue] and "Font color" 
[blue and brown]) - they are diffrent in colors, I don't like it. For me all of this icons should 
be similar in colors and simplicity.
It's my opinion.

Hi Pawel,

2011/2/3 Paweł K. <>:
I am writing about file type icons (fe. DOC, DOCX, ODT) and also about icons
in LibreOffice toolbars (fe. button "Save", "Bold"). As I said, I like icons
from OpenOffice 3.2.1.
Thanks for fast reply and sorry for my bad English.

Thanks for clarifying that - Christoph was right (he usually is ;P)

We had lots of negative feedback on the OOo mailing lists about 3.2.1
icons (mainly because they lacked color) - it was quite a significant
issue and it made lots of users angry. One of the first things LibO
did was to revert the icons to the pre-3.2.1 style before new icons
could be implemented. We are now (almost) ready with those new icons,
and you can see them on this image:
For me they offer the best of both worlds: an improved design and much
needed color. What do you think?
