Sourcetree 2.3 icons are a step backwards

CJ Dennis I'm New Here Sep 13, 2017

Sourcetree has just updated itself from 2.1 to 2.3 and now the icons look really similar to each other. It it possible to have icons that can be distinguished at a glance (e.g. like the 2.1 icons), instead of staring at them and flicking from one to the other for a few seconds to see the difference? No, I'm not kidding. It's measuarably slowing me down whenever I have to use Sourcetree.

I agree they're not clear and a real step backwards. Besices, IMO they're ugly and do not fit the modern design of Sourcetree.


Honestly, I think that their biggest mistake was changing the main icon for the application. I've used Source Tree for years, and now I have trouble finding it, because my eyes are trained to look for the old tree-style icon, not some gradient-lolipop-candy-cane-looking piece of trash.


I'm not a fan of the new file status change icons either. They look like they're good for a dark theme, not the current light theme.


I can get on board with everything else though.
