TC19 update caused fuzzy icons
Read 1909 times

I agreed to the V19 patch update. I reloaded from my saved desktop organisation to get all my familiar menus back
But... the icons look just awful. They seem really low resolution compared to previously (I cannot go back to check though).
I have them set to 16*16 but if I enlarge them to 24*24 they look truly terrible, as though they are really 8*8 expanded.

Is there anything I can do to get the icons back to the previous state?

For example, here are the render icons; I am sure that they used to be much clearer.

My normal usage is 64 bit TC 19.

After the upgrade, I noticed the low-res icons too. Later, when I installed TC19-32 bit the nice icons were re-installed -- even after the upgrade.

It appears that TC19-32 and TC19-64 share all or most of the configuration files -- so I had to reset all the menus and palettes to my normal usage pattern.

If you switch to "TurboCAD Classic" in UI Themes, then restart the program, you should get the old style icons back. If you use the "Custom Theme" setting, you only get the bad looking icons.

John R, now why didn't I think of that! Sigh. Many thanks  ;D

Just as a follow on to let others know.. the following pic illustrates how John R has improved my working day...

I happened on the "restart" by chance one day when looking at the various Workspaces.

I believe they can offer users a variety of icon sets to use in the program, but the original icons are still the best in my opinion. Maybe the other icons look good on 60" monitors, but they ain't making it on my 24's. I can sit for for 30+ seconds (or longer) trying to figure out what tool the icon is attempting to represent and should I click on it or another one. After a few of those, it's back to the original icons.
