Graham Criddle:
They are actually "shortcuts" (pointers to an application) as opposed to the icon for the application itself.

Why would the shortcut be any different than the icon for the application? 

To indicate that it is a link to the application as opposed to the application itself.

When I install an application into Windows the software is placed in its destination folders including an icon to invoke the application.

If I want to access the application from somewhere else - such as an icon on my desktop - I create a shortcut to it. These, by default, have the arrows as shown to signify their role.

One can delete a shortcut without impacting the application, deleting the application itself can cause some problems!

Yes… but don't shortcuts have a little shortcut icon attached to them anyway? Why not use the regular icon?

They are using the regular icon - but changed for L5.

As Erwin mentioned he had difficulty in capturing images of his so I just uploaded mine for comparison.

The new icon is an epic fail for me.  Please review this and maybe do some UAT with a few different options.

Not only does the older remain in the taskbar, but it seems to have stayed the same in the button bar of my copy of Total Commander. It would also appear to be whatever you want it to be in another launch program.

The new icon in Windows is much more like what seems to be popular in Windows 8. Doesn't bother me, but it's not nearly as good as it could be for such a great program.

My icon changed on the task bar and the desktop shortcut. Also, in my application file I don't see any kind of an alternate icon. I know that I am in the minority but I actually like it.

The alternate icon is located through the "Change Icon" button. On W7, this facility looks like this.

This is what appears when the "Change Icon..." button is pressed.

I went to "previous versions" and reverted my desktop icon back to the classic one. We'll see if I have to do that every time there is an update to L5 or if it was a one time change.

Could you post the classic icon here? The previous posts seem to just be screenshots.

Thanks!

I actually prefer the new icon and new start up music.  But then again I am one that feels every new version of any software should have small changes like these in order to go along with the whole new version theme.

Logos 5, Windows & Android perfect together....

Since I had a profound distaste for L4, I like the "white" icon...it reminds me that L4 is a thing of the past. It remains to be seen if I actually take a liking to L5...I am thinking I will stil have to use L3 since few to none of the things I voiced as needing seem to have been included in L5. I find it all quite disgusting, actually.

This is why it will be better to have a Logos supported or produced icon. The icon that Logos settles on will be the icon that will come with the program. I have changed icons in the past for various program, and the one that I change to last only until the next update.

On the Mac, the more traditional logo icon is readily accessible in the package contents. It's in ICNS format which readily converts to a PNG and then to an ICO format for Windows. Very nicely done--in stark contrast to the latest Win one. I really hope they continue to use it.

I found the old icon. I right-clicked the icon on my desktop, selected properties, shortcut, change icon. Then I used the path shown, went into this directory, looked around in the other directories and found somewhere the old icon called Logos4.exe.icon. I then copied it over to the new directory and could then select the icon.

Not to resurrect an old thread or anything, but I just downloaded Logos 5 platinum from the internet, and my icon is simply the mac 'application' icon. I can't get the logos icon to occur. :\

 

Any thoughts? Thanks

Welcome to the Logos community of users. This is the best resource of helpful info that you will find. Lots of experienced users to quickly answer your questions. Some of us are not experts, but do have some years of experience with Logos.

Logos is a huge powerful program that presents a learning curve. Watch the free videos that are available.   

I'm not familiar with the Mac app, but you should be aware that L5 takes a long time to download and hours to index. You might be experiencing a transition process of some kind. Some have found that not everything necessarily downloads in the first round. It's always a good idea on a major download like this to wait until the indexing is through and then restart at least once before assuming that everything is complete.

Don't be afraid to ask. We were all once right where you are.
