KDE Visual Design Group/HIG/IconsAndText


The combination of icons and text can be used to identify items of data or actions in a user interface. Examples include toolbar actions, file and folder displays in a file manager, application listings and notifications.The layout should be consistent.



  • Where icons are shown with text, use the layout guidelines above.
  • For 16x16px icons and smaller, the 8px margins may be reduced to 4px.
  • Where icons are shown without text, always provide tooltip text and alternate text for accessibility.
