Re: [Gimp-developer] GIMP crashes at changing of theme

I too had to change the light theme icons right away for lack of
visibility. Maybe the "symbolic inverted" icon theme should be the default
active. Then only the mid-tone theme(s) have visibility issues. :)

My 2p.

I have that problem with the Symbolic icons with all the Light or
Lighter themes. When I first switched my initial reaction was "Why
are all the Toolbox icons greyed out?!" Once I realized they weren't
greyed out, they looked like that all the time, I tried to work with
them, but I found that I really couldn't see the differences

That's why there is the Symbolic-Inverted icon theme. Its icons are
created by inverting the Symbolic ones (the reason why current GIMP builds
take so long) and contrast quite well with the light themes.

Another question about theme switching: every time I switch themes,
my toolbox resizes to four icons across, so small that tooltips has
to show a horizontal scrollbar for most tools. It has to be six
icons across to avoid a scrollbar, and I always have to resize it
larger after switching themes. Is this intentional, or should I file
it as a bug?

You can shrink the toolbox down even further by switching the various icon
themes. I'd say that none of the switching should change any window sizes.
