Screen orientation icons for D19690
Hmm, TBH it feels too busy for me, especially at the smaller sizes. I wonder if it might benefit from using a single circular line with an arrowhead instead, like this comically crude mockup illustrates:
Unfortunately, there's just not enough space for that kind of icon at 16px. The screen in the icon has to be way too small, the arrow(s) has to be small enough that it turns into noise in the off version, the arrow has to make the icon weirdly uncentered or I need to forget about respecting the margins.
Aleix and I talked, and yeah, your original idea was good. So here's what we need:
- An icon for auto-rotation mode
- An icon for "locked to portrait" mode
- An icon for "locked to landscape" mode
How about a lock icon inside the rectangles to show that they're locked to that orientation? Those vertical and horizontal lines in the current version conjure up movement in my mind, which doesn't seem appropriate.
