Links Bar Icons

Post by Gemini » Mon Mar 22, 2004 8:22 pm

It would be cool if we could change or remove the Icons on Favorites in the Links Bar.

Are you talking about FavIcons? If so, there's been a request for Avant to have an in-house function to retrieve them here.

But, you can also check out this post of mine with some links to programs that will do this for you.

Also, if you set IE as your default, you'll regain the Web Document tab when you right-click your Favorites which will also allow you to change the icon.

folder icons

Post by maple » Thu Oct 21, 2004 3:34 am

I am refering to folders not individual links. When I right click on a folder in my favorites in IE, choose properties, under the customize tab there is the option to change the icon for the folder. When I do this, the default folder icon shows in avant instead of the new icon.

Okay, now I know what you mean.

Personally, I think this is a bug. It started with v8 Build 207 when FavIcon support was added. We used to be able to skins those folders and then we couldn't.

I initially thought that they were using Windows' system foldesr, but then noticed that changing the folder in Windows didn't change them in Avant, either.

I posted that, but can't find it right now. If I do, I'll post the link here.

This was one of the first features I requested as a newbie a few months ago. There have been a few builds since then but I'm still waiting for the ability to hide these 2 icons and get the space back so that I can add 2 more useful icons to my links bar. This feature seems somewhat of a no-brainer to me. Any idea when we'll get it?

Just my vote for this as well.

I strongly support the idea of getting rid of the Add/ and Organize/ buttons on the Links Bar. They take up needless space, and could be easily replaced by a simple right click on the Links Bar. I'm a new user, and I thought for sure the buttons could be hidden, or at least dragged to the end of the Links list. I like to keep my toolbars as free from clutter as possible. I spent an hour trying to right click all over the Links Bar, with no luck. Please give us the option to remove/hide/move these two buttons. Thank you!

Sheessh--you just can't please everyone, can you Anderson? The function has been moved to the right click menu.

I give you credit for searching first--that's more than a lot of folks do!

Sara :shock:
