Single Icons - Hourglass Icon?

Ron Y. shared this question 3 months ago

I seem to recall than in earlier versions of Mindmanager, there was an hourglass icon among the Single Icons.

An hourglass icon is very helpful for identifying topics or tasks that one is "waiting on" someone else (e.g. David Allen GTD re the importance and role of the "waiting on" list).

Am I mistaken in my recollection? If this is now missing, could it be added back?

Hi Ron,

I checked couple of version back and we do not have hourglass icon as default under Single icon but as Waten described above you can add it from Library. I am adding the screen shots of all the steps from English version as well.

Step 1: Hover over the icon section inside inspector pane e5dfea43ef794b8283715e0a22db3215


Step 2: Click on down arrow to add new icon 8b5451ebbf9b8ccf0dabb9a63fde8c4b


Step 3: Add new icon "Wating on" cd787fdadfe8fb9fd16c976c25049383


Step 4: Hourglass icon is being added.

In the normal view you see only the basic symbols of MM, but there are a lot more symbols intecrated.

Although the hourglass icon. The pictures are from a german version but I think/hope its the same in english.

Windows users can also find the hourglass icon by clicking the Icon button on the ribbon and then scrolling down to the Time section.
