Glad to hear it. Don’t stand too close on this forum and talk about the virtues of styled text though - unless you have on your asbestos underwear. Want the number of my tailor?
For my final iteration of the icon, I noticed that many of them, but not all, had this Apple style induced partial rotation. Others did not; Finder (square), Firefox, Scansnap and other round icons. I de-rotated the icons (OK, I straightened them out). I find this makes it a slightly more obvious selection visually.
On a connected note, Doing this with TaskPaper turned out to be easy. I then moved to do the same thing with Curio. That, was not so easy. Actually it was easy once I discovered a trick I had not known of, restarting holding down the shift key during reboot. This puts the mac into “Safe” mode. Restarting a second time (no shift key) takes you back out of Safe mode.
For some reason I had not know about previously, booting in safe mode will do all sorts of system repairs under the hood that no one ever told me about. And, it can take quite a while to do it. I have an SSD of 1TB and it took well over 5 minutes the first time I did it. Normally it boots in under 30 seconds. But it reset the new custom icon (Curio). It also fixed an issue I had learned to live with, as I could not fix it, it where may right monitor had stopped going to a 1900 resolution.
I have a menubar app (Menubar Pro) that runs a bunch of useful terminal scripts all at the same time and then restarts. None of them was able to resolve the issue prior to booting safe mode and booting again. In that step I tried; freeing memory, rebuilding launch services, rebuilding spotlight index, update whatis database, and update locate database.
In that step I also; Cleaned system cache, cleaned all user cache, cleaned Font cache, cleaned dashboard cache, and cleaned DNS cache.
I also ran the scripts for all maintenance, daily, weekly, and monthly.
Safe boot alone fixed it.
