Can I make a request to add an extra Custom list item to the long list of FA icons in the list of available FA symbols in ever FA Foundry stack. The current system is workable but there are many FA symbols missing or labelled differently and it can be an overly long a time consuming task when you are using several FA icons. I.e. the process of selecting icons is usually , go to the FA site, choose an icon, go back to Foundry, scroll up and down the FA list to see if it’s there, etc. You might as well just copy the fa-code in the first place.
Yesterday I made a list of fa-symbols I wanted to use and had to abandon using Icon Font (FA) when the first 4 were not in the list, i.e. share-alt, share-alt-square, picture-o and file-image-o. In fact many of the -o and -alt icons are missing. There are 477 fa-icons in the Foundry list out of the 675 total. I.e. 198 are currently missing!
Also, some icons use a different name, so for example, star-o is called star outline in the list. All of this is a shame because Icon Font and Icon Bar are the best Icon stacks available for RW - except for the FA selection process.
So rather that make a suggestion to add the 198 missing symbols, it would be far more intuitive, powerful, inline with how everybody else does it and more end user friendly, to add an additional custom entry in the list and allow users to use any of the 675 fa-symbols they want.
Also maintaining all of the FA stacks in the current way must be huge time consuming task. By adding a custom option, everyone can be catered for and the ongoing update of Foundry made easier. With FA5 just around the corner, …
