Icons for Std Tools Menu

Postby bitacovir » Sat Oct 24, 2020 7:10 pm

Some commands in the Std Tools Menu do not have icons.
https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Std_Tools_Menu
This thread is to present proposals of icons for:
Std SceneInspector
Std DependencyGraph
Std ProjectUtil
Std DemoMode

View turntable command / Std_DemoMode icon proposal

I tried two icons for Std_DemoMode, one with a view arrow showing rotation and the second with association more to a photography turntable instead.

(However when playing around with the command in freeCad, it seems like the view is rotated along an axle perpendicular to the current view, and not around the Z-axis, this might be a discussion for another thread though. )

These are my first icons, so feedback very welcome. Svg files here:

Thanks watsug for you contribution. I think the second idea (the cube on the disc) is the best. But I would change the play symbol by the arrow from your first proposal. Do you want me to take the file and make the amendments? Also I can apply the Art Guidelines on the design and make the PR...

Yes, please edit :) Do you mean adding the arrow instead of the "play" button?

I tried following the art guidelines, but think especially the 2px line with was lost on the cube when scaling.

I think this design works fine. I added in the metadata of the file your name as author. I will do a pull request this weekend.

Proposal of icon for Std ProjectUtil tool. This follows the conventions for LinkImport icons but a bit different.

Is there any special reason for the missing icon of Std DlgParametertool? The wiki shows an icon https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Std_DlgParameter But the program UI does not have one.

Great, and well done with the other Icons :)
