@sebb: no objection to become my first commit? :-)

I agree that the current pre- and post-processor icons are not immediately obvious, but I don't think the suggested replacements are any easier to understand, so I don't think the default icon set should be updated.

However, if you want to create a new icon set using them, then please do.
Comment 4 Milamber 2010-08-17 18:56:08 UTC
I don't search new icons for a better meaning, but I search a better visual mark for this elements. On a big script, it's not easy to find pre/post processors (and assertion)

In attachment, two new proposals and a summary screenshot for compare.

I wait for comments, I can try do another set with some indication (but I'm not a designer ;-))

I still don't find the "gear" icons intuitive.

However, I like the idea of re-using the sampler icon.

Perhaps one could use it with an arrow instead of the gear?
For pre-processor, the arrow could be on the left and point towards the pipette.
For post-processor, it could be on the right and point away.

For Assertions, the icon could be a pipette with ? super-imposed - or perhaps after the pipette.

I like the latest set.

They are more clearly distinguished from each other, and hopefully easier to understand.
