[Solved] Confusing Part measure delete all icon

Postby furti » Thu Sep 20, 2018 4:33 pm

Hello :)

the "Delete all measurments" Icon in the Part Workbench confuses me every time. Normally a pencil Icon is used to edit something, not to delete it.

I always click the "angular measurment" Icon next to it. Because it Looks more like a red cross than an angle on a quick look :lol:


I also checked some other delete icons in FreeCAD like:
https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/File:Me ... onents.svg
https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/File:Op ... ubtree.svg
https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/File:Delete.svg

They all use a Red X. Maybe the Icon can be replaced with something like this:
delte_all.png
delte_all.png (5.01 KiB) Viewed 473 times
Part_Measure_Clear_All.svg
(22.08 KiB) Downloaded 49 times

Don't know how to embedd svgs so a png of the Icon next to the svg. :oops:

I think you should make a PR.
I agree that x is better for clarifying the deletion.

Will do that. :)

Is it possible to replace the Icon in my current FreeCAD Installation? So that i can check it without having to rebuild FreeCAD. This would Speed things up a little i think :lol:
