Some examples of group icons together with ideas on what to use them for.

Did you know that Ulysses allows customizing your group icons? You can use them as visual labels for a better orientation in your text library. When iCloud is enabled, the icons you selected for groups will sync and appear on all connected devices.

On the Mac, go to the library and double-click a group or select “Edit…” from the context menu. A popover will open, where you can change its icon (and the group name).

Now choose from around 200 handpicked icons the one that fits best. The motives cover diverse topics, ranging from a letter (for a group containing letters to friends, for example) to an alarm clock (“Texts With a Deadline”) to an extraterrestrian (“Strange Ideas”).

On iPad or iPhone, choose a group in the library, swipe to left, and open the group's settings. Here you can change the icon.
