Dock Indicator - Circles by PoulNyrup Dock Indicator - Circles by PoulNyrup
Hi all,

This is my humble attempt at creating some simple, minimalistic circles for Dock indicators to go with Styrizo's "Reflection-text" icons. Colours include black, white, red, green & blue.

1. Close your dock (RocketDock, ObjectDock etc.)
2. Unpack the files to the directory where your dock keeps its default indicator (e.g. Programmes\RocketDock\Defaults\DefaultIndicator\
3. Backup the old indicator
4. Rename the indicator you like from the pack as "Indicator.png" (that's what it's called in RocketDock anyway..)
5. Restart your dock...

I made the indicators in Inkscape, a free programme for working with the .svg (Scalable Vector Graphics) format:

I can highly recommend the programme - it's easy to use, and working in svg format and thereafter exporting to png can be helpful when the resulting files must be reduced considerably in size.

Included in the zip is my .svg file. Feel free to play around with it & do your own stuff. It'd be nice if you drop me a line and let me know if you find any use for it...

Enjoy!

P.S. Dock icons from Styrizo's "Reflection" packs: [link]

How do you get the full circle on the other side of the icon? Or is that part of this skin?

Er... that is, NOT part of this skin?

The little black dot above the "TRSH" is part of the trash icon itself (dot present means there's stuff in the trash bin, no dot means the trash bin is empty). :-)

Thanks, Torched7!

I don't use the indicators or Styrizo's dock theme anymore, but it's nice to hear that some still find use for it... :)

Hi gcorps,

Damn, and that's *after* I edited the 10 other spelling mistakes out...! ;-)

Hey - it was late, and I had run out of coffee. What can I say... :D

Hi there :wave:
Cute idea !
Just a suggestion if I may...
SIlver is always a very appreciated color.
Maybe add a little gloss.
And if you're thinking of a new project, some chrome stars would be nice :floating:

Jeez, Jazzava - you're one quick woman, I'd only justed posted it!! :D

Silver, Gloss, Chrome stars all cost extra (prices vary... ;-)

Just kidding - actually I'm pretty new to Inkscape, so it might take me a while to satisfy your wishes...

Thanks anyway for the comment! :-)
