Hi all, I just joined the list a little while back and have just
started to track the discussions here. I'm not sure how much I'll be
participating but I want to make sure that the icon work we do at Sun
is staying aligned to Tango in some aspects.
WRT the File Roller action icons, I would suggest using the down and
up arrows in combination with the cardboard box for the actions 'add'
and 'extract' respectively. The plus sign / box combo would seem to
suggest adding and archive, not adding something TO the archive. The
arrows should definitely be up / down and not left / right and it's
more clear if the box is open. New and Open should be the default
tango icons as suggested by others. I think 'view' should be an eye
as opposed to a magnifying glass as the later also suggests the
actions 'find' and 'zoom'. Neither of those are the same as view and
therefore to use a mag glass for all of them would dilute the
symbolism of that glyph.
