Description Thomas Lendo 2017-10-02 14:15:35 UTC
Some icon styles (icon sets) haven't a full list of icons for all commands in comparison to the icon styles Tango and Breeze.

As for example Breeze is the fallback for Sifr, it would be useful to have the possibility to use Breeze icons if there is no one similar available in Sifr.

For this functionality a drop-down menu is necessary in the "Change Icon" dialog window in Tools > Customize... > Toolbars > Modify > Change Icon where the use can choose the icon style. Default should be the icon style used in the LibO UI.

Seems reasonable.

would be awesome also for extensions to define the fallback icon theme in an text file of the icon theme.

I'm not sure if this bug is needed. tango is the icon theme which is not very complete so I check the customize dialog and see there the colibre icon's when there is no tango icon available, cause colibre is the master backup.

from my point of view this is enough for configure dialog.

But the fallback icon set is not necessarily the best fitting icon for the user. Looking for another icon set would help. E.g. Sifr and Breeze are more similar with each other then with Colibre in colors.
