Subject RE: Committer with Mac OS X environment needed
Date Thu, 08 Jan 2015 18:03:44 GMT
Hello Regina,

>From an initial evaluation, I downloaded all the icons and I was able to see them using
OS X's built in Preview app. All icons were displayed correctly inside that app.

I can link you up to some screenshots to show you what I am seeing on my display. I'll send
another reply for that with the links.

Talk to you soon!

On Windows these icons are integrated into the executable soffice.exe 
file. So you need to make an own build of OpenOffice to test whether 
Windows can use them correctly. I don't know, but I guess for Mac OS it 
is similar. So if you can build OpenOffice on Mac, that would be great.

But if not, you can at least download and test, whether the icons 
themselves look correctly. Windows cannot show them natively, but a 
MacBook might have a build-in tool to show .icns files.

Kind regards
