BUG: Need higher-resolution toolbar buttons

Post by Travis »

in Vensim DSS v8 beta 19, many/all of the toolbar buttons are very low resolution, which makes them difficult to read. This makes the user interface harder to use (extra time, every time, to read it) and harder to discover (because harder to discern what the icon is supposed to be).

Examples:

* what exactly is the third icon down?
* the C -> D, E icon is hard to read letter ('C', 'E'). And these are just letters!
* same with the A, B, C loop icon too. Letters are hard to read, and the 'B' is cut off.

There are many free, open source icon libraries. These are often in scaleable SVG format.

Apple devices and many PCs have high resolution (>300dpi) displays.

Toolbar buttons should be updated to more modern icons and resolutions.
