Changing icon ?

Nov 12, 2010 1:36 AM


  I have created my panels and all is working well. However, i would to change the icon when the panels are minimized as if you have say 2-4 panels the icons are the same hence impossible to distinguish.


Can that be done ?

    1)Create two png files ( 23px x 23 px or 25x25 ) and name them respectively with the name of the panel you created  :


    panel nameNormal.png

    panel nameRollover.png


    Substitute panel name ( in my example) with your own panel's name and be sure to add Normal and Rollover  with no space between them and the end of our panel's name

    Rollover is the icon state when your mouse is over it


    2) Once your panel is exported put the  two .png files inside his "content" folder as in the image below


    3)Restart Photoshop

    This doesn't seem to work anymore


    I did as told, but the Panel still has the "standard" icon.


    Any ideas?


    Thx in advance!

    It should

    That is the right way,all is ok with me,  may be there is something not  written in the right way

    does a check for the correct panel name ( mantain the same space it has)  and  checks also that "Normal" and "Rollover" are placed attached to the panel name


    Check also  if in the exported panel ( in Photoshop) are the two icons

    thx for your response!


    didn't try in photoshop. i build a indesign-panel.


    but i try quick with a PS panel and the two files. maybe it's not supported for indesign-panels.
