How can we improve InDesign?

New file icons (cc 2018) a step back

Just wanted to bring up something that is hindering my workflow as-of-late - the new file icons for Adobe (using Mac).

I find that the new icons are abrasive visually, but beyond that the function is a bit of a setback. For instance, I used to be able to tell the difference between an .indd file and an .idml file even at the smallest icon size, because there was a distinct difference between the two. Now, however, the difference is so subtle, given that the color/shape of the icons are nearly identical, save a little beveled corner that is indistinguishable at small sizes. So... I keep opening the .idml files, which I save only as safeties, accidentally. Hate to be nit-picky, but as we all know, sometimes a step forward can be a small step back. Looking forward to the next update of these icons.

    YES!!! Even the template files have an icon that is too similar.
