    Post Get back more colorfull icons in version 6.0

    Hi,

    We are using pentaho kettle for quite some time and with version 6, I was wondering how to get back the colored icons? The all blue one are making the jobs and transformation really more difficult to read and use. And easy to read view was one of the strength of this environment. But the all blue look and feel just make it really hard to read and less useful.

    Any tip on where to get those setting back? I did not find them in the Spoon interface.

    I totally agree!

    I think icons are kow svg files, probably in some place in jars as ressources.
    So you could unpack jars and edit the files with colors

    Second that!
    At least the "transformation" and "job" steps within a job were much more easily identifiable when they had different colours!!

    Yes Mick,

    It would be great if PENTAHO maintain different colors for "transformation" and "job". hope it is good practice to raise jira regarding the same i will try.

    Yes please do bring back the different colors!
    I can appreciate that the new design makes everything look more polished, but with everything being blue it's actually negatively impacted the speed at which we can create a job or transformation.

    I absolutely agree, after installing Version 6 the usability is awful, you cannot really tell one icon from another. I went back to 5.3, as it strained my eyes and tripled the workflow time.

    Wouldn't it be better to create an issue in Jira?
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    I found an existing Jira case and voted for it here: http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/PDI-14453
