Icons without text?

I don't remember if it's possible to have only icons without help text under?
(like an "expert Mode")

Hi Pilou,

There is not currently any checkbox type option for it, but it is possible to make that happen by editing one of the UI files with a text editor.

To do that, open up moi.css in a text editor like notepad. The moi.css file can be found in the \ui subfolder inside of MoI's main installation folder.

Add in the following to the bottom of moi.css:
code:
moi\:CommandButton moi\:Text
{
	display:none;
}

moi\:CommandMenuButton moi\:Text
{
	display:none;
}

moi\:CommandButton
{
	margin:3px;
}


With that in place, it will disable all text under command buttons in MoI.

But please note that I have not really set the UI up with this in mind, many pieces of the UI will be compressed and possibly awkward with this configuration, like several text labels may wrap to take multiple lines instead of a single line, etc...

- Michael

EDIT: updated it to add a slight spacing around buttons.

All works fine except only this little thing for Circle and Arc circle
Curiously the last icons don't take place at the end of the line!
Even Margin:3px; exists or not, smaller bigger or not ! (maybe there is an artificial trick to make? )
So not a big drama :) That is very Zen!

Yes, that's a consequence of the side pane becoming narrower in width with the text removed.

Those "command set" items are set to wrap to take up multiple lines if they do not fit within the available width.

PS In this Zen Attitude, maybe "Draw Curve", "Draw Solid" etc can be also an icon! :)

That one can't be done with just a simple CSS adjustment though, since there are not currently any image files set up for those.

But if you'd like to give it a try, you would want to first create the PNG image files for those, then you would modify the file SidePane.htm and remove the text tags (like <moi:Text textid="Draw curve tab"/>) and replace them with <img> tags instead.

But it can tend to be difficult to make good icons for categories, text is often clearer for that level of organization.
