Changes

  • COLLAPSEMENU
    • Hamburger should have a little less weight. Thinner, smaller
  • THREE_DOTS
    • A little weighty, takes up a bit too much vertical space
  • SORTBYEXT
    • Currently just a large star. Would rather it look like .* so looks better for RegEx.

Discussion

  • GRIP
    • I think we should consider rotating this to vertical so it could be used in other places
  • FILE_REFRESH
    • I find this too large, open arrowheads too large.
  • IMPORT
    • Arrowhead too large. A smaller closed arrow would help distinguish with export.
  • IMPORT
    • Arrowhead too large. A smaller closed arrow would help distinguish with import
  • SORTALPHA
    • A bit too big.

Arrows

The following icons all have arrowheads that are too large for their design:

  • RECOVER_LAST
  • FORWARD
  • BACK
  • LOOP_FORWARDS
  • LOOP_BACK
  • EXPORT
  • IMPORT
  • SORT_ASC
  • SORT_DESC
  • FILE_PARENT
  • DECORATE_OVERRIDE
  • DECORATE_DRIVER

Sounds like we might need an icon that means "internet" without looking specifically like a web link:

Smaller hamburger might be too small? There isn't a lot of choice with the 14x14 grid

Is it just me, or in bone collections the dot icon for showing to which collection belongs the bone conveys more the idea that that is the icon for soloing, rather than the star?
Probably I'm used to After Effects which has the same icon for soloing, but feels weird to have those 2 icons so close to each other and one conveys way more the function of the other.

It's not just you, we also struggle with those Bone Collection icons and aren't really happy with them. This PR was just an attempt to just make that star a bit smaller, but welcome anybody making mockups, etc.

That dot though, would work less as "solo" when there is more than one solo'd at a time.

@Harley What about getting rid of the star icon, and instead use Alt+click on the eye icon for soloing?
Like other 2D apps work, Alt+click on the eye icon soloes, shift+alt+click on other items extends the solo, alt+click again on the previously clicked one disables it.
I made a proposal some time ago for this to work in the Outliner and Graph editor, but this could be another potential candidate: https://blender.community/c/rightclickselect/k7XE/?sorting=hot

Agree with the idea but I'll leave the decision for modifier key to the dev.

Still prefer the same key.
remove / add to solo with normal click
enter solo mode with mod+click
if last solo is removed, go back to normal mode

Maybe something like this?

Combining eyes with star, need better readability, this one is quite bad compare to extra space occupy by stars.
Change circle to actual bone shape. Though it looks inconsistent with other area that uses circle.
