Question about categorizing own icons
« on: November 19, 2017, 19:30:31 »
Hello, is it possible to move icons which have description but no category, to (Misc(Různé) category just like if they had no description at all?

Hi,
I'm not sure I understand :). You talk about custom packs with icons? There is not too much what may be done ... best to download new packs of Nicolas Mollet's icons (completed by Ingo) and check how content of zip looks.

Hi menion, I have created a custom info.xml containing icons which have own descriptor in XML, such like

      <item file="1134148029.png">
        <name>
          <def>Různé zajímavosti</def>
        </name>
      </item>

but don't fit to any of the designed categories. Then I have also icons that have no XML record at all, and those fall into dummy category Misc/Různé. Now if I want those icons with XML descriptor to be mixed with all undescribed icons in the dummy category Miscellaneous/Různé, can I assign it to a specific category, which matches the dummy category? (or put it to higher level of XML file ). It would be useful because all those icons are of the same kind.

Probably understand.

Currently all definition of icons has to belong into any category. It is not possible to add <item> definition somewhere ... it has to be in <category>.

So solution should be
  • a) just do not write names for these extra icons and leave them without a record in info file
  • b) or create own category "Různé" and place them inside. All items without a description, just insert with single line:  <item file="1134148029.png" />

Unfortunately different option is not possible. Locus just takes all icons in zip that was not placed into any category and add them into new category "Různé".

Got it, thanks. Probably the option can be added in a future version but it's not so important.
