I'm not the hugest fan of the orange either, and now that I think about it, semantically it's not really accurate either since that color is for warning or unusual states. Maybe it should just be blue like `emblem-added` is? Here's how that looks: F6349192: Screenshot_20181024_234540.png <https://phabricator.kde.org/F6349192> > > > In D16421#348361 <https://phabricator.kde.org/D16421#348361>, @ndavis wrote: > >> > Another thing is the `emblem-symbolic-link` icon.

How is this?

Could we basically use the existing chain link shape but put it within a background? Maybe it doesn't even need to be square; it could be rectangular, or even pill-shaped. The problem with changing `emblem-symbolic-link` to have a background is that it doesn't shrink down very well. You have to distort it to make it fit at all and retain the same look. At 8px, it's simply impossible to make the middle section of the chain without needing to use up the entire horizontal width.
