Products using installer dialogs should update the following:

  • Micro Focus logo: to be replaced with OpenText logo
  • OpenText gradient: should be adopted for background or headers
  • Company name references: should be updated, see the Company name section for more information.
  • Disclaimer: If your installer includes an HP or HPE reference, it is important to include a disclaimer (see HP/HPE disclaimer guidelines)
Splash screens

Updated: November 1, 2023


If your product is using a splash screen, it should be updated with the following:

  • Micro Focus logo: to be replaced with OpenText’s logo
  • Copyright text: if present, needs to be updated (see Copyright section)
  • Background images: remove all stock photo and all other graphical elements. OpenText gradient should expand to the whole background of the screen (see gradient specs: Light | Dark ).



Products using the Micro Focus logo as a favicon or as a shortcut/app launch icon (Desktop, Web, and Mobile) should replace it with either one of the following:

a. Their own dedicated product icon
b. OpenText’s favicon (if there is no specific product icon)

  1. Favicon: Product icon or OpenText icon
  2. Tab label: [context (when relevant)] – [internal page/tab] – [product name]




Products that are part of a suite or platform (e.g. ValueEdge) should use the platform icon and the dedicated module icons used across the platform. Some tabs might use product-specific icons if relevant.

Standalone products that don’t have a dedicated icon should use the OpenText favicon (get the icon from the Downloads page).


🔮 Tip box
The favicon should work in both light and dark themes of the browser or have a version for each.

Products using the Micro Focus branded loaders or spinners should replace them with generic ones. This update includes all splash and loading screens, loading side panels, widgets, loading tables, etc.

Suggested loader:

An SVG image animated with 360º rotation.

  • 64x64px for entire screens or big sections
  • 32x32px for smaller containers, side panels, widgets

*Size can be adjusted if needed
