Neo Colibre for Maximum Productivity



Having fun everyone. I wish you are all doing good in this tough time.

It was Adolfo who complaint about Colibre's failure to accomplish WCAG contrast guideline. He said the colors are too faint and everything looks washed out. Furthermore, MS Office 365 has since moved those colors to a brand new monoline style iconography. See this bug report for details

So I took the chance to update this Windows default icon theme. Luckily, the icon theme comes with SVG version, I can easily use bash script to automate a neccessary color conversion, and take the rest manually. In one month, I finally managed to finish this "Neo" Colibre. Hopefully this will benefit the largest LibreOffice user platform (approximately more than ~80%).

Here you can see side by side comparison to see the improvement (click to enlarge then right click > "View Image" for Firefox, right click > "Open image in a new tab" for Chrome for maximum appearance)

By God will, this will be available in 7.0 release. You can try it earlier from my github repo as an extension (make sure your LibO version equal or greater than 6.0):

    1. Do you mean the one with larger box? Then if yes, you should try daily master build (currently in 7.1 version)

  5. Good work indeed. I also used to though that original Colibre icons, though MSOffice-like, they were faint.

    I have one question regarding the screenshots, particularly, the Writer in tabbed interface mode. When I select the tabbed iterface, I dont see a large paragraph style icon, but only a dropdown menu, as before, at least on Linux. Is this something experimental or Windows-specific?

    1. Thank you Francisco. Yes, personally Colibre has never been my cup of tea because of that.

      The large paragraph icon does not available in current "fresh" (7.0) version. You have to install development version which can be obtained from daily master build: https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/. Hope it will help.
