I love all of CS6. Great work. I like the new dark look as well. But my eyesight, and I'm sure others as well is not that great, particularly with these tiny icons. Is it possible to allow us with configurator, to build our own panel of basic tools, but apply larger icons? I see we can make a button bigger, but the icon is still 23px x 23px.
I'd be happy with just having some large tool buttons I can see without squinting. The software is there. Just need to be able to have larger icons.
Configurator 3.1 is already available for download on Adobe Labs. You can use Configurator 3.1 to solve your problem. With Configurator 3.1, in CS6 panels, you can associate your own images with a button object as icons for different states (button up, button down, and mouse over). You can have icons for Command, Script, Script file, Action, and Popup buttons.
Though you cannot change the icon of tool button under tree node "TOOLS", you can add buttons under tree node "COMMANDS->Tool" to panel, and associate your own inamges with these buttons. The buttons under tree node "COMMANDS->Tool" are equal to icon buttons under tree node "TOOLS".
Thank you. I figured out where you import the icons., It has to be .png.
But can you give an example of how the three icons should look?
different states (button up, button down, and mouse over).
I'll just look for icons on the web to use 60x60px seem pretty good.
I'l make a list of my most frequent commands.
In the picture above,
1. Button 1 from Tools, a icon button.
2. Button 2 and button 3 are from COMMANDS->Tool, the button "Rectagular Marquee Tool"
3. Button 1 is equal to the same button button 2 and button 3. You can use button "Rectagular Marquee Tool" to replace icon button 1.
4. Set the icons with PNG image file for button 3. You can associate your image to the tool button.
5. This feature is only available in Configurator 3.1.
Thank you Yanwen,
I just need an example of what the three states of a custom buton should look like? Obviously, the regular png. But for Down and mouse over, what should that look like?
Is it 'grayed" out? or inverted?
Just don't have any experience building button interfaces.
It depends on which image do you set for each state. The image set for mouse up state will be displayed when mouse cursor is out of the button. The image set for mouse over will be displayed when you move the mouse cursor over the button. The image set for mouse down will be displayed when you press the button and hold the mouse left button.
