Description Regina Henschel 2013-05-13 19:07:14 UTC
Switch to large icons in Tools > Options > OpenOffice > View.
Restart to make changes active (or change icon theme too).
Notice, that all toolbars have got large icons, but not the icons in the sidebar.

Large icons are not only important for users with weak eyes (accessibility) but for education too, where the UI is shown using a beamer.

The "large" symphony icons in default_images are not large enough. They are 24x24 but should be 26x26. But they are not used anyway.

As far as I can see "large icons" are used in the toolbars, but not in other UI elements, like the Navigator.

Thus, this is an enhancement request.

I checked this issue in Apache OpenOffice 4.0.0 on Windows 7. With "Icon size and style" set to "Large", the icons in the sidebar do not get bigger (compared to the setting "Small"), except the buttons Font Colour and Highlighting in the Properties panel of the sidebar.
