I don't like it. The new tray icon is too tiny due to the new border and makes it hard to make out the magnifying glass. The old one was way better. It matched the website and the program icon.

What does everyone else think?

I like the new changes. It sets it apart from L4 (has L4 icons changed as well?). I have L5 so I don't know if it changed for both.

At the end of they day....it is just an icon and really has nothing to do with the functionality or the look of the program itself.

Sure. But as a software designer, things like this bother me :)

In the small form it appears in the system tray I like the old one better. It seems more well defined.

But the reality is I really don't care what the icon looks like. Big Smile

I agree.  I feel the same about the full sized icon too.  They also look like they were redesigned in 15 minutes on the back of an envelope. Email

That's on your Mac. Same thing as my iMac. The ugly one is on my Windows laptop.

Can't wait till I can get a new Mac Book Air just so I can get rid of the ugly icon, hope to do that some time this coming year.

Blessings,

Tim

Yes, please add the old icons back in. That new patch of blue and white definitely looks ugly (sorry to the person who made it his/her 'baby').

Well, I guess that, if there is not going to be any consistency between the the shortcut and the application icons, I would prefer the old over the current new also. I can see why they added the blue border (because the icon would be drowned out by the white background of the start menu), but it is too thick. I do believe that there should be a new/different icon between L4 and L5, and that the new one does have hope, but in it's current state, no. Smile

Maybe Logos should ask the users for suggested icons, then finalize one (or a modification of one) before L5 gains in age.

You mean an icon design contest? Great idea!

I like the old one much more than the new one. I think it is actually the first new thing Logos has come with I don't like Smile

Yes. There are users of various experience here, from newborns to seniors, and what appears to be the common thought on the new icon is that it should be changed somehow. So something has definitely went wrong in the selection of this icon. Technically, it does not matter what the icon is, as it doesn't effect the program use, but it sticks out enough for just about everyone to comment on. Smile

Since we are on icons, how about making the startup splash screen smaller like the previous size and give it rounded corners.

For sure I'm not trying to be "contrary"!        *smile*

Every time I look at the new one, I think that a layer of snow has fallen on the Logos icon.

OK, here's the challenge, pick out the most undistinguished of the icons shown below. They are all basic blue and white (a little yellow on one), so you won't be choosing based on your color preferences:
