Vector layer Icon

Hello! May i ask you? Why the layer icon for a vector image sometimes is a thumbnail (miniature) of the image itself, but sometimes it is a bezier curve?
Many thanks in advance


what is the name of this icon (that looks like “N”)? :slight_smile:

Path, curve, Bezier curve, vector.

thank you very much :pray:

Hi, tank666, thank you for your answer! Can you please also tell how Figma recognizes if an icon is complex or not? At what point a miniature become a standart Bezier curve icon?

Unfortunately, I don’t know such details. If I’m not mistaken, I once saw an article by an engineer from Figma who talked about his work, including the vector icon in the layers panel. But I can’t find this article.


Ok, thank you anyway!
