Paint: Some tools are 'invisible' depending on background

Priority: major Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Paint Version: Unspecified

Bug Status: Unconfirmed


The tool icons used in draw a single colour, therefore they become invisible when background is same colour.

For example, can not see paint pot on a red background.

Which draw activity is this? ATM we do not have one in Sucrose.

  • Summary changed from Draw: Some tools are 'invisible' depending on background to Paint: Some tools are 'invisible' depending on background

Sorry I put wrong activity name, it should be 'Paint'.

The tool in question is 'flood fill' (paint pot), who's icon is completely red which does not show up on a red background.

In my opinion the icons should be two-tone, so that they can be seen whatever the background colour.

Thanks for following up on this.

I am a bit unsure how to go on best with your request, and not to loose important information. Paint is not part of Sucrose, it has a component on though. You can try to file this specific bug there.

Eben, can you comment on the general aspect, the UI guidelines on how to avoid such cases?

Move it to the design team, to follow up.

This is simple: Most of the necessary icons are provided as part of the default cursor theme. (They exist for pencil, brush, eraser, bucket, and color-picker) These should be used when applicable. Custom cursors should adhere to the black-fill/white-stroke used for the default set, and may optionally make use of the left_ptr_modify cursor, adding a custom icon where the tail of the arrow would otherwise be, so that the hotspot for the tool remains clear.
