Description Heiko Tietze 2018-09-26 13:54:48 UTC
The icon themes Breeze, Sifr, Elementary, and Colibre show a dollar sign as icon for the currency button. This is not appropriate to an international product and should get reconsidered.
Comment 1 Adolfo Jayme 2018-09-26 14:13:43 UTC
I’d favor Eike’s suggestion of metaphor at bug 100849 comment 25 (banknote plus coin).
Comment 2 V Stuart Foote 2018-09-26 15:02:24 UTC
Absent an ability to stamp a locale appropriate currency symbol other than the "$" onto the button face--as was agreed to by UX/Design team--the currency icon from each theme need attention dropping the "$"--I would suggest rifs on the "note & coins" from Tango.

The "note & coins" in Tango is readable. But the stacked coins in Karasa Jaga are a little hard to read--hay bales?, no coins.
