Why different icons for slicing?

Postby Noren » Fri Mar 23, 2018 9:50 pm

Noticed that we have the I-icon in the top center of the main window for Start Slicing.
But in the Toolbar at the top of the window we have a Play icon that represents Start Slicing.

The Play icon isn't logical.
The I-icon isn't logical or user friendly.
Maybe a new icon that replaces both of these and more clearly signals "Start slicing" would be in order?

We still want to keep the center one. Since for really big screen or people who has already been used to using this quick button, missing it will be a big loss.
But we can replace these two icons to be the same one for easier understanding.

Just wanted to take it up for "debate". I trust in your ability to keep making IdeaMaker a better and more user friendly app. Just wanted to let you know what my thoughts are.

I agree with Noren. I assumed the big "i" was some sort of information pop-up. I never clicked on it. It's not intuitive at all. I've always used the small 'start' button.

I completely agree with this as well.
