The Thrive Architect plugin comes with a lot of icons that you can add to your content. However, you have the ability to add extra icons to your content.
You can choose from a huge range of icons and because they are vector-based, they scale without any loss of quality.
Note: Generating icons does not work in the Safari browser, due to this browser's auto-unpack feature. To generate and download the icomoon.zip file, please use a different browser, such as Chrome or Firefox.
