The "Select Font" icon...

The stock icon is on the top, and my recreation on the bottom...
Does anyone have the slightest clue what the little green symbol is???
Maybe something in Greek??

i want to stress something i mentioned here
whatever icon size toolbar you make, you must also provide the same in 16x16 pixels to be used for menus. The 2 versions should look alike so that people don't get confused with menu/toolbar disparities

in the worst case you can shrink the XL toolbar images down to 16x16 but that will look tacky

Oh okay.  That's no problem.  The images are actually svgs...  I just export as 24x1776.  It's just as easy to export as 16x...

I always imagined you creating these things pixel by pixel like old Guipetto hunched over an easel under candle-light with a little awl and taphammer.  I don't want to hear about how easy this technological stuff makes your life - let me my few illusions, please - I like to think the rest of the world lives in the 18th century as I do.  Rave on SteamPunk... :wink:

Ok, now those "+"'s and "-"'s are just wrong...

Sweet...

If it makes you feel any better Kil, I do make the process as
laborious as possible.  The icons get reworked, deleted, then
reworked again.  And they have more layers than the Bush
Administration...

Here we are then...
16x1184
Image
24x1776
Image
32x2368
Image

EDIT:

Well then...
48x3552
Image

Folks who are interested, should be able to right-click on one
of the images and choose "Save image as..." from the context menu.
 Save it to a location you can find.  Then Rename the image file,
and put it in the proper directory per Nikos' directions in x2v2.

I didn't find a green troll...  But at least now I know what a blue waffle is.  Thanks for that.
