how to create a custom icon in my standalone

Hello
I have been reading the standalone and build window help for a while now and I can’t figure out how to tell the build window to use a icon I made in icon composer. I don’t know any code language, What do I do in the build window to make this happen?

Opening a help browser and typing ‘custom icon’ leads you to the appropriate pages that explain how to do that on both platforms.

I’ve done that but it is still confusing, this line

its says “create a line with the appicon script keyword followed by the full pathname”

but it doesn’t explain how to do that? what does that mean?

I think you just need to type: appicon “Macintosh HD:/path/to/my/icon” in the script window which appears when you select “build collective/application from the file menu.

I’ve always built my app as normal and then done control+click > “get info” for both my app and the icon file I want to use. Then if you click on the icon picture to highlight it, click copy, select the default max picture and then click paste it should do the same thing.

On a Mac, you can also select your app icon after it is built, right-click or ctrl-click on it, choose “Get Info” and just drop any file(even .jpg) over the icon in the top-left corner of the “Get Info” panel.
