1st and 3rd are stock_mail-send and stock_attach icons. stock_attach could be linked to mail-attachment. (Fix to naming-utils?) For stock_mail-send/recieve there are no appropriate metaphors in the tango naming spec yet. There are several other evo-icons missing but could be linked to or designed from existing ones easily.

The rest (save, undo, redo) are missing some sizes as of now but will get fixed until dapper get's released.

I supposed you tried to say that they will get fixed before Dapper gets released.

Aren't the Human icons supposed to be vector icons?, just like Tango/Tangerine?.

Yes, there are many SVG icons in Human, and we will complete the set
over the course of time.

Is this still a problem in Edgy or Feisty?

Only 2 icons remain old style:
 * Send (stock_mail-send -> no corresponding tango icon yet)
 * Attachment (stock_attach -> should point to mail-attachment)
Please see my previous comment.

The three other icons are fixed. (See attached screenshot.)

Thanks!

Here is a sample quick icon in the current Human styling. Feel free to release if appropriate and better than the rather downscaled version. SVG attached as well.

Source file based on Human stylings (if there is such a creature ;) )

Developed in Inkscape SVN version January 2007 - use it if your rendering mileage goes astray.

Can we get a set of icons in all sizes? If Mark is agreeable, I'd add them to h-i-t.

Troy,

thanks for your nice icon. Unfortunately it looks nearly identical to mail-forward. Maybe you could change the color of the arrow to green?

Could you please do a tango icon first. All mail icons are currently only available in tango which human depends on. You could start from mail-forward and just adjust the arrow. That would mean less work. Later we could do the human styles.

Thanks a lot!

Well I had no idea it looked like th email forward icon. Sorry about that. I'll revise it.

Re Daniel: The target destination is a mere 22 or 32 pixels -- does it appear anywhere else? If so, larger versions can be supplied, but it doesn't seem worth spending hours of spline bending for.

+1

This bug goes beyond the composition window and the icons will help many
of Evolution's secondary interfaces. i.e. Calendar, Notes, Contacts,
Tasks and Memos.
