Icons can be quite space-saving and also pleasing to the eye.
But somtimes the hazzle of making the icon in a paint app and import it into Livecode and keep it in a hidden place is to much.
On a Mac there is a palette calle "Keyboard".
It can show the thousands of chars/symbols in a Unicode font.
Im sure you can find a symbol there that suits you.
The trick is to add the char to the label of the button, not the name.
Scale the char/icon by ajusting the textsize and color it as you please.
