[Libreoffice-ux-advise] [Bug 75398] New: Use Sifr instead of hicontrast theme

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=75398

          Priority: medium
            Bug ID: 75398
                CC: [hidden email]
          Assignee: [hidden email]
           Summary: Use Sifr instead of hicontrast theme
          Severity: normal
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: All
          Reporter: [hidden email]
          Hardware: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: 4.3.0.0.alpha0+ Master
         Component: ux-advise
           Product: LibreOffice

Is it an option to ship the Sifr theme instead of the hicontrast theme?

The Sifr theme uses relatively simple shapes, is flat and should provide good
contrast (at least on light backgrounds). Are there any reasons to keep the old
hicontrast theme around?

Windows 7 default HC mode themes available

Astron, Mirek

Attached is a snip of the MS Windows 7 default offerings for HC mode (OS X and
Linux DTE's have many as well), the static bitmaps of the existing HC mode icon
set is actually not optimal for a number of these HC 'themes'.  

IIRC current high contrast icon set was morphed from the Tango designs, see no
reason not to do the same for a set of Sifr for use when OS shifts to its
HighContrast mode.  

Am I correct in thinking that since Sifr is a dynamic 'flat' icons set, the OS
HighContrast settings could be picked up to drive the Sifr color set as
rendered for HC.

Unfortunately you can't switch OS (Windows 7) into a HighContrast mode, and
have LibreOffice honor a Tools -> Options -> View setting of Sifr icons to see
what it does with the existing renderings. When in Windows OS HC mode,
LibreOffice switches to the HC icon set.

Can anyone think of a way to mock-up appearance of Sifr icons on the common HC
layouts with dynamic color assignment?

Sadly, Sift is still not “dynamic” (recolored by software so it looks good
against background). It still relies on bitmaps, and until that gets fixed
(i.e., LibreOffice starts parsing SVGs), this is kind of blocked.

A much simpler solution would be to have one white Sifr set and one black Sifr
set for HC themes, and have LibreOffice decide which one to use based on the
colors in the theme.

I don't see a need to recolor the icons dynamically -- black or white should
always give the highest contrast.

BTW, if I'm not mistaken, the current HC theme is only suitable for dark HC
themes. People using light HC themes are out of luck.

Current high contrast theme on default grey in gnome.

The current high contrast theme really doesn't work for light themes. This is
it shown on the default grey. Not exactly very usable.
