Description Roy Reese 2015-03-08 10:29:26 UTC
The UI for KDE integration is great, but it would be slightly better if the symbols shown for font effects (Bold, Italics, Underscore) were similar to those used in the Gtk interface.

For those who know English and use shortcuts, seeing B, I, U induces us to use Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, Ctrl-U at times, when the commands are different in other languages (in my case Spanish). The effect is similar to the Stroop Effect (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stroop_effect).

While the Gtk interface with effects applied to only one letter may seem less creative or elegant to some KDE users (a reverse enhancement, if you will!), it avoids this particular problem for bi- and multi-lingual users.

This may be a minor issue, but it has caused me to err a number of times -- and I am reporting it assuming it is easily changed/fixed.

Thank you for your bug report.

This has nothing to do with KDE. This affects all icon themes except Tango.
Comment 3 andreas_k 2019-04-09 18:36:19 UTC
Screenshot please and the language you use.

> Screenshot please and the language you use.

Oops, I did not realise that some icon themes do actually adapt! Colibre and Karasa Jaga show F, K, U in a German UI, but Breeze and Elementary show B, I, U. 

I forgot to say that Sifr shows a, a, a like Tango.
