Thanks,
Luigi

All you need to do is to mark the icon for export in .iml (just like in windows, but in windows you need to use .ico in rc too, but maybe you are using some other way in win32). Build process should take care of rest.

Hello Mirek,

I was not lucky or I missed something. See the picture attached.
I created the icon marking it to export. Added some other to export as seen in theide, but no icon is shown.
Any hint?

Thanks,
Luigi

Well, there one issue that you need to be aware of. Unfortunately MacOS is caching these things and does not provide a simple way how to clear the cache (I have spent a lot of time to find that before giving up). So it is possible that it has now cached old status (no icon).

Perhaps test by renaming the app or restart the Mac.

Renaming the app, i.e. the package, for me was the only solution. The others failed.

No prob.
I have read some guide how to do the same with Xcode and it is a nightmare. The U++ way remain the best!

Thanks,
