what about adding a default icon for HUD like search glass? I dont think bfb is the default icon..it emphaise the Dash ..not HUD.
One instance, when an app is focused and the alt is pressed. the icon is set to the app icon.that's it
the other intance, when no apps are focussed, ie we are on the desktop, the icon is set to the default of the HUD
