Windows 7 default HC mode themes available

Astron, Mirek

Reviewed related design discussions 


Attached is a snip of the MS Windows 7 default offerings for HC mode (OS X and
Linux DTE's have many as well), the static bitmaps of the existing HC mode icon
set is actually not optimal for a number of these HC 'themes'.  

IIRC current high contrast icon set was morphed from the Tango designs, see no
reason not to do the same for a set of Sifr for use when OS shifts to its
HighContrast mode.  

Am I correct in thinking that since Sifr is a dynamic 'flat' icons set, the OS
HighContrast settings could be picked up to drive the Sifr color set as
rendered for HC.

Unfortunately you can't switch OS (Windows 7) into a HighContrast mode, and
have LibreOffice honor a Tools -> Options -> View setting of Sifr icons to see
what it does with the existing renderings. When in Windows OS HC mode,
LibreOffice switches to the HC icon set.

Can anyone think of a way to mock-up appearance of Sifr icons on the common HC
layouts with dynamic color assignment?
