Mary Beth Will Change the View Icons - Check your Views!
Mary Beth Raven announced, that they will redraw all the view icons for Lotus Notes 8. While most icons will only get a facelift, a few icons will „change metaphors”, as Mary Beth put it:
10 – changes from the „finger with a string” to an alarm clock
160 – changes to a clock type thing from a person with a hand raised
81 – changes from the X to a different kind of „do not” type international symbol
166 – (mood stamp for „joke”) changes from eyeglasses to a „drama mask”
169 – indicator for „private” changes from the red hand to an envelope with a special seal on it
As a few colleagues already commented in Mary Beth’s blog, the designers also changed the colours of a few icons (check icons # 98 to 100 and 114-120). Look out for that, if you are using these icons to represent status-information, etc.
If you are a Notes developer and don’t know what I am talking about, read up the chapter „Displaying an icon in a column” in the Domino Designer help.
So check your views now in case you are using one of the changed icons!
