I kinda like the new icons.

Am I the only one on earth who wants actual WORDS along with whatever
icons are used?

No! I hate icons.

If there is space, I use text only (as with the TB I am posting from).
If not, I use icons and text under. When icons alone are unavoidable, I
hope that tooltips are available.

When I see a picture I have to translate it into English before I can
understand it.  I can get used to 'greenblobwithwhitestreakontop' being
something I use all the time, but for the rest I have no idea at all
what those tiny pictures even ARE, much less mean.

Is it perhaps not a trifle ironic that the icon for "Help" in LibreOffice 6 is a lifebuoy?! Maybe it's a last, desperate sign intended to show that "I'm drowning in incomprehensible icons"...
