#8807 closed bug (fixed)

Alternate PDF icons in light of possible trademark concerns.

As per the discussion here:

I'm attaching the icons... the PDF one shown, and 2 possible temporary PDF Writer ones. The text isn't very good on the one with the PDF on the printer itself, but it was the best I could do.

This ticket should be divided into two parts:

  1. use the new icons instead of the current ones (I like the *_7 printer icon better than the *_14 one, btw)
  2. get in touch with Adobe to get a license to be allowed to use the default PDF symbol with the icons we had previously
  3. if that works out, either switch back, or, if then preferred, just keep the new icons.

Even if we got a license, I think the icons should be updated anyway. As far as I know, the dotted logo like that hasn't been used for a decade or so? It's just been the swirly thing (with no dots) for many years now.

(I don't like 14 much either, but I included it just in case someone did and felt like fixing it or something.)

Today, I'll add version 7 to the repository and update references to them.

Applied in hrev44435. Thanks!

For some reason, I couldn't figure out how to get the PDF writer icon displayed in the printer preflet.

Shouldn't we make trying to get the license part of this ticket, too, and document the progress (if any) here? In that case, we should keep it open, even though the immediate problem is resolved. Otherwise we should open a new ticket so that we don't forget.

Eh, I'm a fan of 1 issue per ticket. The license aspect has been created as #8811.

We still need a new icon for BePDF and DocumentViewer. Since DocumentViewer also handles djvu and other formats it definitely shouldn't use the PDF swirl. Maybe BePDF can keep just the bee.
