The icons in dockers for e.g. table handling are very hard to read due to being quite small and having a chrome frame around them that becomes part of the visual impression.
I attach a screenshot with comparison with libreoffice where they are bigger and without chrome frame. it much more readable.

how the user interface looks in this regard is a style question, so I refer to the oxygen icon graphics artists. Actually you claim it's the border, but I find the icon themselves to be too similar
the icons may look too similar. But a lot of it is the frame around them and the small size that makes them really similar. Take a look at krita where there is no frame around the icons in the Tools docker.
While it may appear like that, it's not true: the border doesn't make them smaller.
I have just tested.
I think you are right - the border does not make them smaller. But the icons are also available as 22x22 and 32x32
The visual expression from the border/frame/chrome/shadow makes it harder to see the see icon. And also the size.
I also agree with you that these icons are not the easiest to "read".
But I think this issue illustrates that "helping" the icons with a clean surface can be positive.
I appreciate you taking a look at this! :-)

use flat buttons in the textshape docker
M +57 -9 plugins/textshape/dialogs/SimpleCharacterWidget.ui
M +36 -0 plugins/textshape/dialogs/SimpleInsertWidget.ui
M +64 -9 plugins/textshape/dialogs/SimpleParagraphWidget.ui
M +70 -7 plugins/textshape/dialogs/SimpleTableWidget.ui
Sounds good. I've striked it on the CWOP page.
Will it be in 4.6 or 4.7?
could you post a screenshot?
And I think it may get backported to 2.6 but 2.7 for sure
That is cool! :-)
Just looked at 2.6 RC1 and it is not present there.
