Description Fabian Vogt 2018-03-03 17:13:29 UTC
glowbar.svgz is broken - the center pieces are rounded so can't be used to draw straight edges.

This results in the edge glow effect drawing a wave instead of a bar.

Someone familar with SVG tiles could check this.
Comment 2 Nate Graham 2018-11-13 13:53:54 UTC
Fabian is correct. The north/south/east/west tiles of the glowbar.svgz images need to have straight edges, not a curve.

It would probably be more aesthetically pleasing if the strength and size of the glow were toned down a bit, too.

Looks like that particular request is already tracked in Bug 337712.

Change glowbar.svgz to smoother style

The old style was weird. When the screen edge feature was enabled for the sides of screens, it looked like a bunch of dots smooshed together. Now it's one smooth bar.
