Icons can be assigned to custom processes located in the Automate menu. Note: the Automate menu location can be customized through File > Settings > Interface > Automation.
To assign an icon to a process, a .ico file with the same name as the process must be placed in the same folder as the .process.
Note: Renaming a .png or .bmp to .ico will not generate a proper icon file.
The image file must be rendered as an .ico using the proper software tools. Tools such as GIMP (https://www.gimp.org/) can be used to make this conversion. Using GIMP, open the image file and go to: "File: Export As…”, then select “.ico”.
Images for different resolutions (e.g. 16x16, 20x20, 32x32) can be saved and rendered in the same .ico file through multiple layers. BuildIT Metrology will automatically select the best image size to display based on the icon size in the UI.
