I've been using many icons to make buttons through my application distinct and easier to understand(by using common icon), but one button struck into my mind: "Set Default" button. I couldn't find anything like icon for this, and I wonder if it exists or how it possibly can be expressed as a pictograph.

EDIT: To clarify what I mean: default here meant as default in list of values, not a default value:

  • Item 1 <- default
  • Item 2 <- set default button with default icon
  • Item 3< - set default button with default icon
  • Item 4 <- set default button with default icon

You can show this way also a gear inside and a 3 arrow turning round (getting back setting or previous settings)

  • I like this icon, it implies repeat-ability and a setting in one, what your default is.

Ran a search for "default" on the Noun Project and i got a reset and a home as good ideas.

How about an "undo"-like symbol? Actually Gimp uses such a symbol:

set default GIMP
