How to enlarge toolbar icons?
« on: December 13, 2012, 11:16:50 pm »
I've searched but can't find information on how to make the toolbar icons larger. Is it possible to enlarge the toolbar icons?

I would like to request that future improvements include 'large toolbar icon' option.  8)

Having just moved to a new system with an HD screen I'd also like to request that a large icon set be an option. (The existing ones are really tiny now.)

the team is waiting for Qt supporting HD screens.

the new Qt version published today should do that.

now they have to implement it (and possible wait for the new version of Qt spreads on linux...)

Sounds good to me.

Fingers crossed that the latest version of Qt is used soon.

(As for the bug tracker ticket added by Kunda, that sort of thing would be great.)

I would also like the icons larger.

They are way too small on my large monitor.

Also since installing 1.5.1 from 1.4.6 I seem to have lost the more stylish icons with the colour highlights, to be replaced by boring flat two dimensional icons in black and white. The old ones weren't all that exciting but a great improvementt on the new ones.

Running Windows 10. If I run 1.4.6 I still have them.

Any suggestions?

Ozguy, in 1.5.x there's an option somewhere in Preferences - or there was the last time I looked - where you can change the icon theme but I can't remember if the old (coloured) icons are available.

The new icons came from some work that started a while back and - in some cases - is still on-going (see http://forums.scribus.net/index.php/topic,1585.15.html and http://forums.scribus.net/index.php/topic,1617.0.html). I've no idea what will happen in the future.
