Better icon for Arch_CutLine

Post by vocx » Sat Jan 04, 2020 12:58 am

Jerome created a new command for Arch, Arch CutLine.

See the threads Arch cut plan with line proposition and draft layer separate line and shape color override, and pull request #2701.

I don't like the icon, Arch_CutLine.svg, because the green and red colors don't look quite right.

That one was based off Arch_CutPlane.svg, I think.

I think Arch_CutLine could have a different way of indicating the section is done by a line, even if the icon looks significantly different from the Arch_CutPlane icon.

It looks a bit like a "cancel" or "forbidden" symbol. Can you think of an alternative? The idea is that the line cuts the shape.

As I said, the icon doesn't need to resemble the old icon if another representation looks better.

Here another interpretation. More options will have to wait after holidays.

Since you are back. Any other icon proposals?
