A visual overview of all icons

To find an icon without knowing its name, a visual overview is available.

menu User interface > Icons > tab Icon overview

  • Once you have found the icon in the overview, you can select its row and obtain its name from the corresponding form field.
  • Or, select the icon and execute task Go to icon go to icon. Note that this task will bring you only approximately to the icon since the GUI cannot supply the row information.
