First off, hats off to you for version 3.2 as i had been sticking with a revision compiled in July.happyDidnt really like the new icons for connect and close, but why not change the whole icon set, so that it looks uniform, as those two look out of place. Also i prefered the old font used in the GUI compared to the new one as it was crisper to me, so is there anyway to bring it back.

Well i submitted a bug asking that if you right-clik in the Quick Filter option when in a blue highlighted NULL value cell, that it would give options for `field` IS NULL and `field` IS NOT NULL and i was informed it was incorporated, but i still dont see it.

Well, we're not designers, so that's maybe the reason why the icons are not pretty consistent currently. Some are old, some are taken from a public icon set. Is there any option for you helping us out and create a complete icon set for HeidiSQL?

Oh, the old font was MS Sans Serif, a font which has slowly died out on Windows systems. I don't think we should switch back to it. There is even a newer one which should be used on Vista. Using Tahoma we're somewhere in the middle of old and new fashion.

I remember there was something but I can't find it in the featuretracker. Can you point me to it? I am sure there was some discussion about it. Was it here in the forum?

I highly guess you mean this bug, which was fixed in revision 979. But that's not exactly what you just posted here and in addition that's a bug, and you have posted a feature request, so this gets confusing now :(

Ah, just found it here. This is a feature request which has been fortunately splitted out of a totally unrelated bug. I guess you have been informed that the bug was fixed and closed while you interpreted that as if someone would have fullfilled the feature request, could that be?

This is highly confusing. Please don't report two unrelated bugs in one go or even mix bugreports with feature requests. Took me half an hour to understand what's going on here. Thanks!

Wish i was a designer then i would have been glad to, but i'm just a developer. :roll:

I do love tahoma as is a perfect web font, but its forming of small letters in comparison to ms sans serif in the gui is not as good, most particularily with the letters u and n.

Sorry about the mishap, with the request. I had mainly submitted 1812097 because i had right-clicked on a null-valued cell and all quick filter gave me was = '' and != ''.

sorry about that. i submitted 1807267 which had the following.

wrote: About the quick filter, if possible to detect that a field is NULL and not '' can fieldname IS NULL or fieldname IS NOT NULL be included in the quick filter submenu.

The icon set has now completely replaced by the Silk icons from Mark James. See a previous-after-image here or download the latest build here.
