Document Revert by DanRabbit Document Revert by DanRabbit
I can't decide what icon to go with. Care to help?

The icon is "document-revert" which reverts to the last saved revision.

Middle one is most intuitive imo

The first one from the left is good. Suggestion: add one piece of paper to it. It should look like two papers one above the other. Thats represent to me the document-revertion.

The second one (in the middle, he-he) looks very nice! The third one (at the right side) looks very nice, but less informative. :)

Middle's what you're gonna want, the first one looks more like 'Previous Page' and the third one like 'Re-Load'

The golden middle. The third is nice, but looks on a fast glance too much like "reload".

The most descriptive is the second one. The first one could be wrongly interpreted as "export this file" and the third one is not so descriptive, although it looks great! Maybe you can use it for another action, such as reloading the file or something.

Definitely, the icon in the middle :D

i like the middle one best. the left one is too commonplace, and the one on the right doesnt really indicate it has anything to do with documents

None of these. #1 looks like document-import and #2 and #3 look like refresh. Something with a clock face in it to communicate time (and therefore versions), maybe?

What would use this, btw?

The first reminds me too much of the share (Contractor?) and undo icons, the third, while pretty on its own, looks too much like refresh. So I think the second/middle one shows that you're reverting the document the best. It's more like the New Document icon (which has the page and the plus, if I recall), whereas the third one is more like the more general "add" (plus) icon, where it doesn't have the document behind it.

The first one makes me think of exiting or cancelling. The third make me think of refresh, and a little bit of revert, if you added some lines in it to make it look like a clock.

So I think the second one is the best. :)

Well they wouldn't* really but icons should be unambiguous and in my experience an arrow in a loop tends to mean refresh whereas an arrow pointing to the left usually means undo or go back. Neither are completely unambiguous but I think the first one makes the most sense as a revert icon.

*Except perhaps if they had the same document open in two programs for some reason.

I believe we can use them all (if you like):

The first can be used for the right-click context menu (alongside a "View past revisions").

I agree, the second one is the most effective icon for "Revert to last saved revision"

The third can be used for the revisions app. =)

if it helps, the first one is by far the most obvious. the other two immediately make me think "refresh" while the first one says "return". the latter more closely relays the meaning

I agree with this. For me the first arrow resembles going back, while with the second and third point to the current situation. Which one is the best to use depends on the save icon. I think it's good if the "Back to last save" resembles it a little. That way it clearly states it's use each time. I like the document behind the arrow so I would keep using that.

Suggestion for icons:
Save: Document with yellow star.
Undo: First Icon shown above.
Revert to last save: Combination of star and arrow pointing back. But I don't know if you can make this look clean.

I hope this comment helped! Thanks for reading. :)

I believe the second one describes its purpose best. The first one could be associated with flipping pages and the last on looks more like a "refresh button"
