Besides, there's already an indicator of 'work offline' (a disconnected

I dispute the obvious part. It is *obvious* to those that know what to
look for, *not* to the casual user. And, before you raise the issue, I
am *NOT* a casual user.

But it is not, by a long shot, obvious "once one thinks to look". Apart
from the prejudice (from the latin, pre judice, "to judge in advance
[before knowing the facts]"), your statement is overly aggressive,
implying the original poster does (or did) not think, or want(ed) to.

Please be more courteous. Everybody will enjoy more your knowledge this
way. Also, please keep in mind those that know more are here to direct,
instruct, and pass knowledge, to those that know less. In a nice way.

And I think the original poster does have a point.


FWIW, I too was stymied by the unobviousness of this icon for a day
or so when I started using evolution.  I support the original poster's
suggestion.  Alternatively, the words "OFF LINE" (in red and translated
to national language if necessary) instead of that icon would be better.
