Needs Icons for Modern UI

Post by HakanSeven12 » Wed Apr 15, 2020 10:53 am

I need minimize and close icons for dock widgets. Minimize can be green, close can be red. Thanks for help.

Hi, sure.
For Close there is already an icon in red. I recommend to use this: https://wiki.freecadweb.org/File:Edit_Cancel.svg
For minimize icon I found a full screen icon. Therefore, the minimize icon should be the opposite direction of arrows (to keep consistence). I adapted the icon for this purpose:

Let me know what do you think.

I'm sorry, because the enlarged version looks really great. However, in the real size versions the arrows are hardly recognizable, it looks more like a Hilbert curve.

Well. It is the same with the original FullScreen icon. But even if the arrows are not so clear for both cases, the icons themselves can be recognizable between others.

It's not look bad.

2 considerations:
- may I suggest to use the pin/unpin symbol? I think the current looks like a maximize/fullscreen button
- i think those two icons should be grayscale, because they are not FreeCAD commads
follow my experiments on BIM modelling for architecture design

I think the idea of @carlopav is better. why don't you try these icons in gray?
