FB5: job icons

Postby MiG » Mon Sep 09, 2013 10:09 am

Storing backup icons in a single file and referring to them by position has the weird consequence of higher numbered icons shifting on all backup jobs that use them. Would you mind changing the icon storage method to a subdir with individual files?

Hi,

Do you have such a problem with icons in FBackup?

I did, as it took a few tries to get icons that work with FB5's resolution, I deleted a few then added new ones. Next thing I know my photo dir had a games icon on it, and so on.

It appears to be shifting related to which icons were after the deleted one in the icon strip files (FBackup.16.png etc), so a solution would be a subdir with individual icons, for example photos.16.png, photos.32.png and photos.64.png. If any of these resolutions were to be missing, FB5 could easily fill the gaps the same way it adds new files to the existing structure, by either stretching or shrinking, but with individual files you won't get the weird shifting icons thing :)
