Get an SF Symbol

SF Symbol is an icon library designed by Apple and built into macOS. It provides thousands of unique icons with several color options. An SF Symbol can be used to show in the sidebar of the user-facing Catalog App for macOS. Here's how to use SF Symbols:

  • Download the SF Symbols app from the Apple Developer website:

  • Choose and select an SF Symbol

  • Control-Click on the SF Symbol and choose Copy Name to copy the SF Symbol name

  • Paste the name in the preference key Logo and optionally LogoDark (when using different color options)

Not all SF Symbols are available in every version of macOS as new SF Symbols are introduced in newer versions of macOS. Be sure to check availability in the SF Symbols app and it may vary depending on color options.
