Description Drew Jensen 2018-05-24 17:02:43 UTC
When the icon set is changed in the options dialog the UI automatically updates to display the new icons, in the Base main window the button in the 'Base' pane do not update.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open any Base file.
2. Open the Options dialog and in the View section select a different icon set

Actual Results:  
The four buttons in the 'Base' list do not change to the new glyph.

Step 3. Close the odb
Step 4. Open the odb, the glyphs are changed.

Expected Results:
All glyphs would update to the new icon set without the need to close and open the Base window.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

screen shots as example

Three screen shots of the Base main window, first open, after change of icon set but before close and after close / open of Base file.

Could confirm changing the icon-theme will only be displayed for the left side of LO-Base when LO-Base will be restarted.

Also the icons in the pane "Tasks" will only be displayed in new theme after restarting the Base-file.

@Heiko, @Andreas, I thought you might be interested in this issue...
Comment 5 Heiko Tietze 2018-05-31 15:35:50 UTC
We changed the default theme on Windows and the fallback. Those missing icons result from artwork not yet done.

This is no icon bug it's an bug that the sidebar didn't update when change the settings only after restart LibreOffice.

I can't fix this bug.

Unchanged icon in Writer tab

This behaviour is present also some buttons in Tabbed interface (eg style icons in Writer Tabbed). Definitely need dev touch

Still reproduced in recent master build:

CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3

Already the case in OOo 3.3 -> marking as inherited.
