2015-11-30 16:55:48 +0200 commented answer Icons resize incorrectly for custom toolbar items

Thanks. The ones I've tried have all been either 16x16 or 26x26 px: mostly I've been trying to use the standard "print" icon from a given icon set. It's setting the icon size to "large" (under Preferences > View > Icon size and style) that seems to lead to the problem.

I'm setting up LibreOffice Writer, and I've found some strange behavior when trying to add an icon for a macro I've placed on the toolbar. This may be a bug, but I'm hoping there's a solution, or at least a work-around.

I'm working version (build ID e5f16313668ac592c1bfb310f4390624e3dbfb75) on an iMac (OS X 10.11.1) with a high-DPI ("Retina") display. The ultimate user (my grandmother) has limited vision, and the icon size is set to large (under Preferences > View > Icon size and style). In case this is relevant, the OS is also set to use a scaled resolution for the display, which it says "looks like 1600 x 900."

I've written a macro that I'm trying to add to the toolbar with an icon (of a printer), which is where I have run into a number of problems.

With the default ("Breeze") icons, the version in the Change Icon window is correct, but both the Customize window and the toolbar itself use the small-size version. This persists after quitting and re-launching LibreOffice. Toolbar showing problem 1

With the "Galaxy" and "Oxygen" icons, I get a different problem: they initially work correctly, but when I quit and re-launch LibreOffice, they are scaled so that only part of the icon is visible: Toolbar showing problem 2

That second problem also happened when I tried to manually import the lc_print.png files in the "Change Icon" window: success initially, but badly re-sized after quitting and relaunching.

Does anyone have an idea of what is going wrong or how I could avoid it? The supplied icon sets resize correctly, so it would seem like there should be a way to configure LibreOffice to treat my macro as it would the standard "print" function — but I can't figure out how.
