It all depends on your goals. A good paid icon pack always brings more exclusivity to your product than a free one.
When it comes to Anron Icons, they were created to help your products stand out and shine. But apart from aesthetics, this icon pack also has great customization tools, all of these Figma icons are ready to adapt to your unique needs.
For the professional Figma user, the difference is day and night, but let's condense that down to a few points.
With Anron Icons you can exclude Adobe product from the icon design process. I'm biased, so for me, this is already a huge victory.
Figma shows amazing performance even on budget laptops. The entire pack is always available at hand in a few seconds. In addition, Figma gives you features for group icon editing that no existing tool can provide.
I would also like to emphasize this once again — icon pack with a trivial import from AI to Figma will never give you the same level of customization as Anron Icons.
You can easily change all key parameters of icons: size, color, stroke width, corner radius, individual points in vector paths, etc.
And thanks to the unique methodology for grouping vector shapes, you can even contain multiple versions of an icon inside a single component and switch between them while maintaining colors in all instances!
In any that only can come to your head: apps, websites, e-books, social media, marketing, print, whatever.
The limitations apply only to the maximum possible number of icons that you can use for each unique project. It is worth remembering that you cannot embed the entire library in client projects.
You can insert up to 100 (500 in 5 styles) icons into each unique project such as website or app. And up to 50 icons (250 in 5 styles) in digital items for sale like UI kits, website themes, and other templates.
Anron Icons offers a whole set of unique flexible customization features that are only available in Figma. I do not want this product to be judged by the quality of some trimmed version exported to another design tool.
However, this does not mean that you cannot do it yourself. Just keep in mind that you will lose a lot of features.
If you just visually like them, then of course. If you're ready to include a little Figma in your workflow, then you won't lose anything at all. You can fully customize the icons and then simply copy the SVG into your tool of choice. The entire library will always be at hand and available directly from the browser.
If you are not ready to add some Figma, this product also includes an SVG archive and a full IconJar library with visual search capabilities. In addition, you can try third-party plugins to export Figma file to the format you need. But it's worth reminding again that with this approach you will lose some of the significant benefits of Anron Icons.
It depends on your tasks. In general, here are a few basic options:
Once inserted, I highly recommend creating separate local icon components for each unique project. Group different icon styles into Variants if you prefer this approach.
Not yet. Here are the top reasons why Anron Icons will not have Variants support:
Despite the above, I can safely recommend using Variants on a small selection of icons per project. All of these shortcomings only show up when your icon set gets really huge.
In simple words, this is a smart group consisting of vector shapes. Each shape inside remains alive and fully editable. Figma perceives such a group as a single shape, which opens up a number of useful practical functions.
The extensive use of Boolean Groups in Anron Icons is one of the key functional differences of these Figma icons from many others.
Sometimes you just want to get the flattest icon possible without unnecessary layers and customization options. It's very easy to do this in Figma, and even on all icons at once!
Keep in mind that the entire icon will be converted to a single vector shape. You will lose the ability to adjust the corners and the stroke weight of such icon. But scaling will always be proportional, as if you were doing it with the Scale Tool.
I cannot recommend using this function in the original library. However, it can be a good idea for local icons in separate projects, when you are absolutely satisfied with the appearance of the icon and no further customization is required.
This usually means that you want to achieve proportional scaling of the corners of the icon when resizing, but leave the ability to change the thickness of its stroke. You can do that right in Figma too!
As with the Outline Stroke, I cannot recommend using this function in the original library. However, it can be a good idea for local icons in separate projects, when the required level of corner radius is already clearly fixed.
All corners and strokes in Anron Icons are live. This gives you 2 ways to resize an icon to choose from.
Keep in mind that scaling with the Scale Tool does not quite work correctly in components. I highly recommend creating separate components with smaller versions of the icons if you need to.
Such group editing can be useful when you have already selected several dozen icons for a project and want to set the same stroke weight for all at once.
It's also worth mentioning that you can easily change the stroke within instances without having to detach from the original components. But use it wisely!
As with all other group changes, I do not recommend using this procedure on the original library, but only on a separate local icon group.
It might save you some time. But keep in mind that you need some extra fixes here and there, as many shapes are composed of points with different roundings. To enter vector editing mode, simply select the desired shape and press Enter
As with all bulk changes, I do not recommend using this procedure on the original library. It is better to do this only on a separate local icon group for a specific project. This way you can pay maximum attention to each icon.
