Designing shapes across different zoom levels

Figures have optimal legibility ranges—just like typefaces. Meaning a shape designed for 32 pixels will often be illegible at 50% and appear chunky at 300%. That’s why Iconic is being designed at three sizes for desktop applications.


You can now design your own shapes in Draw2D optimized for different zoom level. Either you use different SVG code or you can implement it as draw2d.StackFigure. Below you see a vey simple example how the figure behaves during zoomIn / zoomOut.
