In KDE3, we have 4 arrow icons:
That move step wise and the corresponding 4 arrow icons:
that go all the way in that direction.
We also have two additional icons:
that have a non-sequential usage.
Perhaps these are not the best names, but they seem to have worked OK.
The Icon Naming Standard appears to name there (in the same order):
for the single steps, and:
for the actions going all the way on the respective directions.
Perhaps these names are better, perhaps not, but that isn't the issue.
It doesn't make a lot of difference what we call them as long as we have
the 8 icons for the 8 concepts.
The first problem I see is that we have no new icon names for the KDE3
and the fact that we have used these names for something else (which is
OK), doesn't mean that we have taken care of these two concepts. It
does, however, tend to complicate discussion of the question. :-\
We have in KDE4:
which don't appear to be in the current Spec.. These are OK, however,
they are subsets of the KDE3 icons:
since the icons: "find-*" are only for the find operation and there are
other non-sequential operations that require: "next" & "previous". A
good example of this is Adobe Acrobat Reader. On the bottom toolbar, we
have (by tooltip) LtoR:
The Icon Naming Spec currently lacks icon names for the last two.
Should we call these:
of are there better ideas?
