Now with the new vector icons in Office 365 the Slicers icon in Excel doesn't change any more. 


You can't see if you have applied a filter to the Slicers or not.


In previous version the filter icon was "light gray with a monochrome x" when no filter was used and marked in "dark gray with a red x" when you used the Slicers to filter the data.


With a lot of Slicers, it is hard to see when the Slicers is used or not.

I find the new iconography to be very confusing as well. It was so obvious before which slicer was filtering the results. Now it's impossible to tell, which is a serious regression in my opinion. Because the slicers filtering vs unfiltered is so confusing, I now only use one per PivotTable.

Excel Office 365 July 2019 - still red x's everywhere - on all slicers regardless of filtering - PLEASE FIX

Red x's on all company dashboard slicers regardless of filtered status. This is confusing and causes lack of situational awareness. This is a serious bug that needs to be fixed immediately -- preferably with an explanation regarding how it was allowed to happen and what steps have been taken to ensure an error of this magnitude will not be repeated in the future. Extremely stressful.
