On this page we collect descriptions of the icons we need for Calligra. Rather than showing pictures of icons we describe the functionality they provide.

The icons are grouped in sections so they are easier to find. When adding new please consider which group to add them to, and possibly create a new group.

Only requirement is that they will be used by more than one Calligra application.

List currently unmaintained, needs to be picked up once work in Calligra/Icons/3.0 is done.

Chart Types

name KDE3 name description Assigned To
office-chart-surface
office-chart-bubble
office-chart-gantt
office-chart-stock
office-chart-polar-filled

There is already a nice set of chart icons, but the types above are not yet included. Ideally the same artist does the missing one. All existing icons are part of Oxygen icon set, see office-chart-*


clef Types (+ icon for shape)

name KDE3 name description Assigned To
music-clef-bass yuri
music-clef-alto yuri
music-clef-trebble yuri
music-clef yuri
musicflake/musicshape icon for the Music Shape

Layer Actions

name KDE3 name description Assigned To
layer-new for the action to create a new layer (layer as in: layer in a stack of layers of a document, where each layer contains a group of objects, like a pixmap)

Krita has a "newlayer" icon (krita/pics/newlayer.png) which is similar to an empty document. Other than that there are no icons with a symbol for a layer yet.

layer-duplicate used in the context menu on a layer in the "Layers" docker of Krita, for the action "Duplicate Layer or Mask". Or rather do a generic "edit-duplicate" icon?
layer-merge used in the context menu on a layer in the "Layers" docker of Krita, for the action "Merge with Layer Below". Or rather do a generic "edit-merge" icon?


Guides Insertor Options

name KDE3 name description Assigned To
add-horizontal-edges Used in checkbox of the Guides Tool to control if guidelines should be added at the horizontal borders of the current page
add-vertical-edges Used in checkbox of the Guides Tool to control if guidelines should be added at the vertical borders of the current page

The Oxygen icon set has "snap-guideline" and "edit-guides" as design reference.


Tool icons

name KDE3 name description Assigned To
tool_formula_edit is now "text", should be a sigma or something
tool_pagelayout a symbol for (the tool for) the basic layout of a document page/slide

Seen Calligra Words in the title bar of the tool view "Page layout". No idea from where the icon could be derived.

tool_references a symbol for (the tool for) everything related to refering other texts (footnotes, literature, citation).

Seen e.g. in Calligra Words in the title bar of the tool view "References", No real idea here where to take symbolism from for the icon.

tool_review for the review tool. Currently not available in the UI
commentTool No idea how and where to create comment shapes and thus how to see the comment tool. So no idea what is needed here as icon.

Comment related icons are in Oxygen none, in Calligra:

  • sheets/data/toolbar/hicolor/hi16-action-comment.png
  • sheets/data/toolbar/hicolor/hi16-action-removecomment.png
  • flow/stencils/SDL/comment.png

The icons tool_pagelayout, tool_references, and tool_review are used together with the icon of the text tool, so ideally have a consistent look.
