Ugly toolbar icons

Icons are terrible. That upscaling is really ugly. "Small" icons are large and ugly, "large" icons are huge and even uglier.

I have 176PPI display (1920x1080, 12inch) and DPI everywhere is configured correctly -- when page in LOWriter is displayed 1:1 and I put sheet of paper on my display, their size matches exactly.

Can't LibreOffice use large icons with no upscaling by default on such display?

I don't see this bug under Win8x64

please define exactly your Linux distibution version

I would like to rephrase this bug:

Why oh why are the toolbar icons different between Microsoft Windows
and Mac OSX (and probably on Linux)?
The icons on Windows are clear, coloured and beautiful.
The icons on OSX are like intended for "The End Of Times":
gray, almost alike and without contrast.

Can you please copy the icons from the Windows set to the OSX version?
Please!!!
;JOOP!

I'm running Debian Linux (i386), using LibreOffice packages (version 1:4.4.1~rc2-1, i386) available from distro repositories.

It is completely OK to have different icons on different platforms. It would be very ugly to have Windows icons on Linux desktop, since it would be the only app to have such icons.

We ship the same icon themes to all platforms. In OS X, just go to Preferences > LibreOffice > View and choose “Tango”, “Galaxy”, “Crystal” or “Oxygen” as your preferred icon theme.

OS X builds use the Sifr icon set by default. Can simply be changed to Tango (default for Windows and GTK based Linux) or Crystal (KDE), Oxygen (KDE4) or Galaxy. Breeze (KDE5) has been added for 4.5 dev builds.

Icon sets are changed per-user from Tools -> Options -> View: User Interface "Icon Size and Style" drop downs.

To all people above:
I never got an email from your comments.
I only saw these today.

Thanks: I was not aware of the icon theme at all.
It solved my problem completely.
;JOOP!

I use a Dell DELL UP2716D (QHD 2560 x 1440 at 60 Hz) on a Windows 10 
Professional. The Windows Scaling option is on 200%. With this setting all Icons looking terrible even in compatibility mode and also with all possibilities changing Icons small/big etc in Libresettings (V6.1.1).

Is there any hope for fixing that behavior?

Thank you

That is likely bug 119020 affecting HiDPI displays, follow along there.
