Custom icons - Alteryx removes coloring

Lwe

Hi,

Im trying to use my own icon for a macro.

When I'm using a clear crisp colored icon the color is removed by Alteryx.

If I save with Paint for example I get an unclear image but at least Alteryx doesn't remove the "background" color.

Is there a way that I can actually get that clear colored icon

Here you can see the result

 LogoColor.PNG

The logos are attached 

Thanks

Lars

Try saving them as png files with a transparent background.

I think Alteryx like 171x171 resolution as well. 

 

I've been using Paint.Net to generate icons for macros and custom tools for a while and works pretty well as png files.

It seemed to be an issue with transparency. 

 

1) Opened with paint, resized and saved as png = did not work.

2) Opened with paint, resized, changed the color of one pixel and then changed it back = worked.

 

Best,

Marc
