Title: Icons for the top bar
Post by: LCArt on May 03, 2021, 12:49:31 AM
Could you add a symbol picker for the SF symbols? could help a lot of people that have no idea what sf symbols are or where to find em :(
Maybe when you tap the tool name, you are asked if you want to use text, a SF symbol or Emoji

It needs developers time which can be spend on something more useful, imho.

Free sf symbols app:

I want an icon picker for the toolbar too, but not the standard icons because they make the toolbar look terrible. Instead of using system/app icons, there could be a decent selection of icons in the style of Artstudio's other icons. The developers can easily get a big collection of icons in the right style from stock/graphic design sites and don't even have to create the icons themselves, just put them into a selector for the toolbar. I really like the new customizable toolbar, but the wrong icon design and the text mess up the interface  :-\ SF Icons are okay but selecting them by going back and forth between the apps is obviously not ideal...

Edit: I just had an Idea, since you have support for the SF icons, you (art studio) or we (forum members) can make a list for SF icons that fit well to the functions and you (art studio) can make these icons the default name for each function, then the right icon will automatically be selected when someone adds it to the toolbar  8)

But the Icons are not different for each user, they just need to fit the function, so when every user has do the work and find appropriate icons anyway, it can be compiled into a list and those can be the default icons for the functions. It does not have to be a complete list

Everybody forget that everything needs time to be made. Everybody now can customize icons on their own as they want to with sf symbols. I’d prefer developers spend their time on quick shapes or reducing size of panels then these icon tweaks.

We can write our sf codes here.

I use:

viewfinder.circle for Transform
icloud.slash for Deselect
trash for Clear

That is why I proposed what you did there, making a list of icons that fit to the functions and the developers just need to make these names the default, which takes very little time, but would save a lot of users work to find icons themselves  ;)

Yeh, thats why i suggested this, it helps people who is not super tech savy ... in my case i found an app and it has the names and copy paste function, so is easy to add, but would be nice having some "defaults"

If somebody will prepare list of default SF Symbols, i will consider implementing that...

You can send me that by email: info@luckyclan.com.
Or put it here...

nono, i mean if i should follow some kind of convention for the list... be it json styled, option - icon, option - name of the icon, etc

Send me as a list. We will prepare the rest by ourselves. Each action for top toolbar has an unique "id", we will associate the id with sf symbol...
The first list should be short, we have to test if it will work or not.

I hope we would be able to rename these additions. Otherwise I don’t like the idea of topic starter. I still can’t see the problem for people who want to add few shortcuts to top bar manually name it on their own.

Well, i don't like the idea either (and i'm the topic starter), but i'm tired of suggesting to the author about adding a floating panel where we can add shortcuts inside, similar to the new favorites panel in 3.2 but for shortcuts... his response to that was creating the quick menu, but that's not optimal because we cant always have it open and if we could it would take way too much space... My 2 issues with top bar is it gets bloated, only allows 3 characters and has no icons for the shortcuts.

I'll try to do a mockup of what i think would solve everything, but i'm afraid the author will give me yet another "i don't have time for that" (even if he turned tools and favorites panel into something 99% similar to what i suggested him....). I guess i'll try one more time before i really give up on suggesting things or reporting bugs :\

Edit. (https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/709275976638660652/850075960938463262/Untitled_7.png) I visualize the shortcuts panel like this, 3 sizes for the shortcuts (i would merge favorites with shortcuts, since favorites are just that...shortcuts). I would allow the user adding any "function" inside the panel like the quick menu allows you, but also brushes, colors and even brush sizes/opacity/flow. Long press a shortcut to show edit | remove. Edit would allow you to change the shortcut and/or tweak its size and other things depending of the type of shortcut. It's just an idea, i think it can be refined way further. Other apps have similar panels, like clip studio and mediabang, so if we can't remove the default swatches because other apps don't let you removed them, i don't see why we can't have a panel like this since other apps also have it ^-^

I don’t have time for that, sorry ;)

It will not give too much, you can now add any action to toolbar, and we moved Favorite presets to compact panel.
