I think pretty much all the icons are very clear and typical looking, with the exception of the run and do, where the green arrrow (I mistyped in my post) covers the distinguishing feature. A solution would be to offset the green arrow a little to the right in each icon, maybe overhanging the icon right side just a little. There is width the do this. That would uncover the distinguishing feature more and satisfy those I provoked! Redoing the whole icon scheme is not what I'd want, as I view them improved and I like the new GUI.

This was clear in Stata 9. In Stata 10, the -run- and -do-

I can see some very faint lines on the right-hand (do) icon,
but for all intents and purposes they look like two of the
same, as they both have this big green arrow covering most of
the page. Not a good visual reference, and one which I hope
StataCorp will rethink.


I strongly agree with Kit. I think all the Stata 10 icons
need a re-design; they are woolly blots, difficult to
distinguish. The indistinguishable -run- and -do- icons
are the worst example, but some of the others are bad, too.

Hope this works,
