In Trello home page with all the design examples, the one contributed by Marnix K shows you are able to insert a row of icons on a card. Each card has different sets of icons. I couldn't find out how to do that!
It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
I'm not sure what you mean, but there are 2 ways of displaying "icons".
