The point is the missing icons in the leftmost row. If you look at the right angle you can see that they are visible, on a dark grey background very dark grey icons. They should be kind of white in the dark theme.triplus wrote: ↑Tue Mar 06, 2018 9:18 pmUser can enable Compact mode. And i wanted for the end user to have some clue. On what navigation mode is selected when using the Compact mode. That is why different icon approach is being used. From the Ubuntu 16.04 and as seen form the image point of view. Therefore i don't see any usability issues there. It should work as advertised.
As far as i am concern this area won't change in FreeCAD 0.17. Rationale being monochrome approach is common for "tray icons". The status bar on majority of platforms is of light color. It was tested on dark set of FreeCAD style sheets and it works reasonably good. As for users using black or extremely dark themes. They usually don't want something white sticking out.
I'm with you here. That should be done in 0.18. Every change bears a certain risk, albeit small.
Then we all agree. That is good enough for me.
You where closely involved in the development of Navigation indicator. And we both know this discussion has already been conducted. For you to wait a few seconds before FreeCAD 0.17 is released and to start making claims on how there are oppressing usability issues, dubious design choices and things like that involved. Can't say i didn't see that one coming.Then it was a dubious design choice, not to take dark menus into consideration. Not an usability issue? Duh, the icons are invisible.
