More space between icon and text

Hello,

This is my first post in this forum.

I am using Numix theme in XFCE 4.12 and I like it very much except the how it shows the Open File dialog (below snapshot). I would like to increase the space between text and icon in the highlighted area.

Does anyone know how I can adjust it?

Hello and welcome.

Add the following to ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css:

filechooser .sidebar-revealer image { padding-right: 40px }

...change the "40" to suit.

For those of us that have not yet migrated their version of thunar to gtk-3 (i am on v1.6.11), is there an equivalent gtk-2 setting i could use? Thanks.

Happy Holidays to you! m4a

I tried this, but does not work. Changing 40 also doesn't do anything. Do I need to log-out and in again?

Thanks

Re: More space between icon and text

@neshom, it works here for me. The screenshot above looks like the GTK3 FileChooser dialog. From which program did you get that dialog?
Also, can you post back:

cat ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css

@mint4all, I can't seem to find a way to do it. The element is a GtkTreeView where each row has an icon and a label, but there doesn't seem to be a way to add spacing between the two. At least that I can find.
