Finder Icon Preview

Starting with Mac OS X Leopard, Apple started using throughout Mac OS X and encouraged developers to do the same. But LibreOffice icons are still 128x128 icons and they look pixelated when previewed in Finder. 

Below can be found Apple Icon Design guidelines:

Screenshot attached.

Thank you very much for your bug report!

I hope you will be glad to hear that this request was already fulfilled: In the Master (3.7) branch, we already have high-resolution icons (1024 x 1024 px and 512 x 512 px) both for the LibreOffice application itself and for the main document types (.odt, .ods, .odp, etc.). The new icon files were provided by Nicholas Shanks in the following commits:

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=0cb1b9685877f6aeaddf1088ae5008e38bade6f9

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=00ec76a49d8caa2e367151683a77eefcc1ee75df

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=6e78fd18c9ca2d70af93cad321f55f3d72172742

These icons will ship with LibreOffice 3.7 (in the beginning of 2013). You can already test the new high-resolution icons right now if you download
a LibreOffice master/3.7 daily build for Mac OS X from
   http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/


However, IMHO the new icon files will not get backported to the 3.6 branch, and it is not necessary to request that, because we have the guideline that all minor updates (here: 3.6.1, .2, .3, .4, ...) should contain “important bug fixes and localization updates” only. Sorry!

Therefore, this bug report is already handled as far as possible, and therefore I set its status to RESOLVED/FIXED (because the fixes are well-known, see list of commits above).

Thank you again!

Assigned report post-mortem to Nicholas Shanks.
Added target:3.7.0 to whiteboard.
Added to meta issue 42082 -- it is nice to have some fixed items there, too ;-)

@ Nicholas Shanks:
I have assigned this bug report/enhancement request to you, because you had already fixed it, before it was reported ;-) Nice!

So there is nothing to do for you, the “assignment” is just to give you the honor of being the one who has already done it.


@ Emir Sarı:
If you find any problems with the new high-resolution icons in the 3.7/master builds, please file a separate bug report for any problem you find. Thank you!

Oops -- I have found such a problem myself ;-) Following my own advice, I have filed a new bug report for it, bug 56249.

@ Emir Sarı, @ Nicholas Shanks:
Please check that new bug report. Thank you very much!
