I created a set of status bar icons for OS X 'Yosemite': http://dtrebbien.deviantart.com/art/Vis ... -491284452

One issue is that the icons are barely visible when the status bar item is selected, and completely invisible in dark mode. Is there a way to have Viscosity mark the images of the ViscosityMenuIcons set as "template" images so that the colors are properly inverted in dark mode and also when the status bar item is selected?

Hi dtrebbien,

Thanks for your contribution - I'll move this post to the Goodies section of the forum for others to find. :)

Unfortunately at this stage Viscosity will only treat the "Default" icon pack as template images. As a temporary work-around you could replace the "Default.ViscosityMenuIcons" pack with your icon pack, which will have the desired effect.

Cheers,
James

Worked like a charm! Thank you.

There is one issue with swapping out the Default.ViscosityMenuIcons, though. Because the default icons are code signed, whenever I connect to a VPN, I will see a "Do you want the application 'Viscosity.app' to accept incoming network connections?" dialog flash on screen.
