Continuing the discussion from Actions and markup: Icons vs Tags:
From time to time I’m writing documentation for new users and end up typing
: to trigger the emoji completion and find the
:bookmark: icon, or the
:pin: icon, or the
:gear: icon to show what to look for to accomplish a certain action. As exemplified with these three: , :pin:, and , the iconography seems not to be designed for such a use-case. I end up using longer sentence to avoid adding to the confusion of the (usually impressed) users who freshly dived into Discourse.
It seems there’s already a (fastidious) way to Change icons globally using the APIs, but I’m wondering whether there are other options to use Discourse UI icons in posts somehow.
