I must agree that I like the older icons much better. Besides being more intuitive to experienced users (both because they are what we had been using in UltraEdit for years and also because they conformed to industry standard designs) they were also much easier to see. The color contrast was much better, the line definition was clearer, and the overall designs of the icons was cleaner. Particularly for the smaller icons. Now they all have a grayish blue tint, blurred edges, and more complex designs. They may be nicer artistically speaking, but functionally they're horrendous. I'm actually considering reverting back to UE16 until this issue is resolved because it's affecting my productivity and I don't have several hours to reinstall 16, take a screenshot of the menu bars, create all new icons, reinstall 17, and then assign all the icons. There are some nice features in 17, but not worth the mess that the tool bars have become. And FYI I registered on the forums just to add my opinion to this discussion. That's how strong my opinion on the matter is.
