These icons make so much better use of color and are much more visually clear to me. I’ve been really trying to like the new icons but I just can’t. They’re almost all the same color and this makes them harder to read at a glance. The Play Solo button looks the same as the run button, every script icon looks the same until you take a second glance, and other UI changes like the removal of these buttons;
It all makes me loathe the newest version of Studio.
DO NOT PATCH THIS! THIS IS NOT A BUG REPORT
also, For the love of God and all things holy let me keep this
An option to be able to select which theme and button layout would be nice at the very least if this feature can’t be implemented instead;
Or at least use a theme more similar to the one in their example:
This continues to make good use of colors to improve visual clarity and readability at a glance while still making Studio look more modern. It improves the look without sacrificing functionality and usability.
Thank you for taking the time to read and consider my desperate plea.
Roblox is actually releasing theme support, you can change the icons and itll pull from there if told to in the settings, which allows to change some, or all of the icons, i do hope they allow you to change the actual backgrounds though, being able to change colors of the widgets would be really nice.
I don’t like how the better DPI handling is attached to the icon changes too in the Beta features list. I really don’t understand why… I just want my monitor to work properly but I need to use the new icons in order to have it function properly? Kinda frustrating
I like the new icon design, but i despise the way it affects color recognition. I feel like ROBLOX is trying to follow the simplistic design trend, but the way ROBLOX thinks about how their updates will affect their community needs to change IMO.
Honestly, I think they are a massive step up from the old icons (except the black icons, please say that’s a bug)! Also the icons come from the Silk Icons Pack, which are a set of stock icons. They are free to use, but ask for attribution. Iirc, Roblox has given no attribution to the people behind them, which could be a problem.
Then, search for “Device” (for mobile device emulation) and “UI visibility” in the search box on the left, click the result, click “add”, check the box on the item that appears on the right, then click “OK”.
The buttons will appear on the bar above the ribbon bar next to the file button.
It’s annoying they have to be up there but this is an adequate workaround, for me at least.
You can also bind a keyboard shortcut to these actions if you like by selecting File>Advanced>Customize Shortcuts… and searching for the same things you searched for when adding the buttons to the bar above the ribbon bar.
I honestly find the new icons confusing, its kinda hard to find the things I want to find, everything looks so greyish… I don’t know its just unfamiliar.
If there is a way to use the old icons I dont know how to do it
