Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 238245
Usability issues with a number of icons
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:50:20 EST
Description of problem:
I took a few minutes to go over the Echo icons found here:
Mixed use of emblem to indicate "new"
+ emblem (address-book-new, appointment-new, mail-message-new=
* emblem (document-new, window-new)
One emblem should be settled on to convey the term new, I suggest the + emblem
as the star is illogical and is also used to convey different meanings in the
2 different visual representations of bluetooth:
The bluetooth device icon is not the same as the preferences-desktop-bluetooth
icon leading to confusion.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The most likely way to make any progress on these issues is to discuss them on
fedora-art-list. There is a rationale for * vs +, I believe.
Closing as WONTFIX
Echo is unreadle when smaller than 48x48 and uses blue color in too many places.
Look at configure icon on Clearlooks button - icon is too dark.
Tango! is good example. Small icons are very light and readable.
Echo artists should change the palette (if any) and guidelines, or release them
(I think there's no guidelines).
