[MANUAL] - adding custom icons to categories
« on: December 10, 2010, 16:04:52 »
needed version - 0.6.12 and higher

method is very simple. Icons compress with zip compression and whole file copy into Locus/icons directory. In dialog where you select icons, you will have choice which icons (internal Locus or any of your files) you want to show!

size of icons is on you! Suggest sizes around 32x32px or 48x48px.

align of icons is on center of bottom border. I thing that's best and most useful.

enjoy!

It may be a good idea that people send their own categories icons to uptade default icons in locus

Current icons in locus are ... hum... how to say that gently?  :oops:

I think that 99% locus users will never add their own icons

you can share icons, if you have any nice, here viewforum.php?f=15

If nice or not, they are useful. That's sure. And you're first who say they're ugly. For this, is here ability to use own icons.

Currents icons are not "ugly" but sure there is a big gap between category icons and others
Locus icons of the interface (which are really really nice)
You know, Windows 95 icons are not "ugly", but I deeply prefer MACOS icons! ;)
I'd like to help you on this point, but I can't : sure that my icons will be really ugly! :D

Hello!
How can I add my object icons on the map?

I like the central kursoor.
But I want to add your own icons for identification of objects.

How do I do?

Sorry, english version - automatic.

no understand ... to add own icons, just compress all icons into one zip file, and this file into Locus/icons directory, that's all ...

Sorry for the automatic translation.

Now I try.

Compress a folder with icons or icon without a folder?
Format PNG?

What is the size of your icons?
I like their size.

Thank you!

Please add icons to the program.

I think it would be better to use bright colors.
Not black.
