one of those times when it sounds like a good idea, but when viewed at icon resolution it becomes to busy, hence hard to read. But still not a bad idea its mostly all the lines on the mesh that make it difficult to see. I had to add another copy coloured white underneath the Gmsh icon since my original had been partly transparent hence the yellow shod through originally. This is what it would look like...
I'll have a look...back in a bit.bernd wrote: ↑Sun Jul 19, 2020 12:43 pmJim, I am with you in the regard of letters in icons. I just had no better idea when I made the icons.
If we schange the we would need at least one for gmsh object and one for netgen mesh object.
Should we distinguish between gmsh mesh and gmsh fem mesh object ?!?
Honestly neither did I.
I will just make another icon that uses a logo similar to the NetGen logo...although theirs is very complex. I will have a look at this over the next day or so, and see what I come up with.
You mean for he treeview icon for the FEM mesh object once it's created?
Basically you are totally right. Eventually it just needs someone who implements this.

That would forgo the need for multiple icons for the same exclusive operation...what do you think?
If I'm right that's also bonus points for clarity in the GUI.
