Subject [jira] [Updated] (NETBEANS-2617) Redraw common icons in SVG
Date Thu, 30 May 2019 17:31:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NETBEANS-2617?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Eirik Bakke updated NETBEANS-2617:
----------------------------------
    Description: 
Once NETBEANS-2604 is done, we should start replacing commonly seen NetBeans icons with SVG
versions, for improved appearance on Retina/HiDPI displays.

With some practice, it takes on average 30 minutes to create an SVG version of a typical icon
in Adobe Illustrator. See the attached illustration, and [this Illustrator template|https://people.csail.mit.edu/ebakke/misc/netbeans-icons/netbeans_icons_illustrator_template.ai].
The Illustrator template includes a few icons which have already been converted.

In NETBEANS-2605, the following prioritized list of icons to convert was produced:

By redrawing the most commonly seen icons first, we can get the greatest "bang for the buck"
in terms of improving NetBeans' appearance on HiDPI displays.
