With 2 tones of gray, light and dark, (over the black background and white
outline), I have trouble instantly identifying which is the highlight. In
the delete case, if there is a highlight, it would seem to be the outer
elements, so that suggests the darker gray is the highlight.
I may be confused because the row or column that I highlighted in the
sheet usually takes on a darker shade, while the center row or column in the
icon is lighter.
It requires me a lot of thought to work out a logic that overcomes what
appears to be a dissonance between the subject and action of the arrow and
my perception of the intended action.
Thanks again Gary, hope that helps, --Fred
