Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-06-30 15:05:18 UTC
With an icon, i think it will be easy to notice. Maybe a gear, rench or something like .uno:ControlProperties (plier crossed rench) or .uno:MoreControls (option box and check box).

Reasonable enhancement, but selection of the icons needs to be icon style aware.

This is off the main menu, where there already are several icons in place:

File -> New
File -> Open
File -> Wizards
File -> Exit

and on

Help -> LibreOffice Help

Setting new.

what the gear icon looks like

Planning to use applications-system.png from tango's icon set which looks like a gear.

3 possible icons

Looking further over the tango icon set, any of the 3 icons in the attached screenshot will do, so if you have a preference, please let me know.
