I will try to convince my wife to find some time.

Why not following that advise: "Diamonds are the girls best friend ... lalala". I've heard that should work out fine (99%) :wink:

First is to clear what the icon should be. Its important that the icon is in small sizes (16 x16) recognize able and differentiable.

How should the main icon look? With a "H" for AutoHotkey? Or may be a symbole for example a red greater than symbol ">" as a running macro symbol?

How about a small keyboard with the same rotation as the logo. Additionally I can think of a small fire on one of the upper corners. I mentioned s.th like this some times ago.

http://www.autohotke...4700.html#64700 (for the fire thing I took the Nero Logo as an inspiration)

What do you think about this idea? It would be some kind of "hot keys" ;)

A full rotated keyboard with a little flame? It seems hard to fit in a 16x16 pixel image... ;-)
I like BoBo's logo, choice of key, look of flame. I might try and do something with it this week-end.

Ok, you're right about the rotation. Nevertheless I started an attempt without rotation:

Hey, good one! It makes it hotkeyboard instead of hotkey, but it reminds of the official logo, as you stated, so that's nice.
What about Paused and Suspended states?

On that 16x16? :shock: Well, I guess we'll end up with a single pixel 'S' or 'H' character :lol:

Well, just highlight the H, P or S key, depending on state... ;-)
Now, it can be a change of keyboard or background color, removing the flame for Suspended (no hotkey active), etc.

I thought about something like this:

removed due to updated design

those are just the first attempts - filetype icons are planned too

Well, here are some further suggestions for the different states.

Posted Image normal
Posted Image pause
Posted Image suspend
Posted Image pause+suspend

If s.o. is interested in it, here's my multilayered .psp (Paint Shop Pro) source.

Nevertheless I'm looking forward to other logo suggestions.

I like them, good work. First, I was against the flame logo, but the small ones are made distinguishable from other icons and applicable to the mean of what AutoHotkey is. :)

Also, I think of an extended and standardized set for download in higher quality and containing some of often used type of scripts, like (some ideas):
* Automation / Batch
* Automation / GUI
* Windows Application
* Only Hotkeys and Hotstrings
