Calligra/Icons/Shared icons

On this page we collect descriptions of the icons we need for KOffice. 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 KOffice application.

name KDE3 name description
delete-table-row delete_table_row An icon for removing row from a table, e.g. a table currently selected row(s) in KWord, a whole row(s) in a spreadsheet, a database row(s) (record(s) ) in Kexi's tabular or form data view. png
insert-table-row insert_table_row An icon for inserting a new (empty) row into a table at current selection, e.g. a table row in KWord, a whole row in a spreadsheet, a whole row in Kexi's tabular view. png

Additional note: In case of Kexi, the action is not the same as "start editing a new row" (current Kexi icon, MS Access icon), but has largely the same meaning as in spreadsheets - for example it is used in design mode of the Table Designer (screenshot).

dialog-no button_no A gdash '-' icon being a pair for dialog-ok (blue 'v' icon). Used in places like the property editor for 3-state mode, where yes/no/unknown states are provided. Currently the icon is drawn as a gray dash:
File:Icons-KOffice wide icons-dialog-no.png
It is recommended to use a neutral color and not red. In particular we did not decide to use dialog-cancel (/) or red 'x' to avoid suggestion that the selection as about deleting an item. (Jstaniek 14:02, 31 October 2008 (PDT))
Source code using the icon: [1].
