Thank you forr feedback)
Now we are working on reducing the color palette, trying to figure monochrome/ dark theme solutions, and programming SVG slicer to split BASE file to icons automatically.

Also - Simple icon theme

@1D_Inc

In the other thread i said around two weeks time needed on my side. But i went ahead and enabled temporary solution, for you to being able to proceed with your work without any mayor interrupts:

P.S. On Arch Linux rcc tool is a part of the qt5-base package.

Thank you)
But I'm a person that is pretty much far from compiling, I am linux user for about a month, I use it mostly for rendering)
Current solution is working nice for me - I can see enough to make design decisions.
Currently we are busy with slicer, I guess it will take also about a week.
Then I planning to work with color themes closer, as far as it will have much more sense, because of possible speed increase.

Sounds good. For now both options are still supported and use whatever you like. Any interested user can create such icon pack locally, by following the instructions. Likely, once you will try the procedure out, you should notice it's easier, when compared to rendering. ;)

P.S. Using this approach should enable you and other people to go beyond limitations of the previous approach:

Polyline icon redesign process, due to it's M (arc) function

I like first line there (ND, n and P shapes)
Also D3 is looking most clean of them, but it may be confused with kind a fillet action.
n shape (F1) has the same density as previous polyline icon, and it have no such issue.
A1 (ND shape) is my favorite one, but, indeed, it cannot be created with sketcher)
Don't know if it matters, previous version also had this issue all this time, but visually, like an icon, it worked well.
