FHUG icon packs

Post by Genie15 » 06 Feb 2018 15:27

Hello readers,
I've downloaded FHUG icon pack. In my plugins list it is named as Install FHUG Icon Packs.
I run the plugin and it opens File Explorer!
The instructions says it will prompt for a zip file and create a subfolder in the FH icon folder with the same name as the zip file etc.
Am I supposed to download an icon file from the Store first or select and zip file on my computer?
Also I don't have a folder called icon. Where should it be?

You need to download the icon zip files you want from the knowledge base.

Knowledge Base > Downloads and Links ~ Diagram Icons

Your web browser will put them in your downloads folder.

You can then simply select and install them using the plugin.

To answer your question about where icon folder should be, it already exists in the standard customisations FH ProgramData folder:
C:\ProgramData\Calico Pie\Family Historian\Icons
