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.
- ODS file of Calligra icons sheet (seems out-dated)
- directory in git repository of old Calligra-wide icons
- Oxygen naming specs
- Kexi icons naming prepared for migrating to Oxygen
- ODS file of KDE icons; use as inspiration for the formatting here
View management icons
|fit-to-width||view_fit_width||Fit to width: This mode automatically adjusts the zoom so the width of the page/canvas is always entirely visible.|
|fit-to-page||view_fit_window||Fit to page: This mode automatically adjusts the zoom so the page/canvas is always entirely visible in the view.|
|fit-to-2-pages||n/a||Fit to two pages: Possibly we could also have a "fit to two pages"|
|fit-1-to-1||n/a||Actual pixels: In this mode (for paint applications only) pixels are shown 1 to 1 on screen. This is not the same as 100%.|
|grid||grid||Show grid: a switch - shows or hides grid helper within the document 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:|

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))
