Description meywer 2007-10-02 16:26:58 UTC
The little image (icon) on the button for changing the color of characters in a
text is not very meaningful. There is color at the bottom but should be in the
glyph. And this character (little a?) is quite ugly.

Should be changed.

(Also the buttons for bold, italic and underlined are ugly now (why blue??) - at
least the one for „through-striked“ has left as it was in OO2.2 - simply nicer.)

I believe the change you are seeing is because your distro now uses the Tango
icon theme as default. You can revert back to your preferred theme via
Tools>Options>View (icon switching).

I agree that the icon design (lower case 'a') may not meet User expectations and
might be improved. However, the design and color of the text formatting icons
are consistent with the general style for the Tango theme. That being said, I
have seen similar Tango icons in black...

-> Jimmac, maybe you could have a look at this enhancement request. Cheers.

Thanks for the hint about the theme. I left Tango and everything is like I was used.

But the following critic holds also for other themes:
The icon for changing the color of characters in a text is not very meaningful.
There is color at the bottom but should be in the glyph.
(The backgroung-color-icon is similar, but reasonable. The font-color-icon isn't.)

Tango is not supported anymore.
