My team and I are developing a web-application ERP, and as communly in softwares of this kind, we have a lot of CRUD views in our system.
We use the Font Awesome 4.7 icon pack as our main font of icons, but recently we have depared with a usability problem:
The problem is: we use the same icon in the close function of our modals:
Recently when we discover this misleading conception, we talked about it and found that we have to pick what function icon is going to change.
So I'm here asking:
Is really a bad thing to have an icon used in two distincted functions?
