Show labels which use icons as detail of said icon.

In the Software Factory, we have the Icons screen where we can find every icon used in our project. However, if I reuse the icon for a label, this icon gets duplicated in my overview.

As a result my overview gets crowded with identical icons: 

I would prefer to see the used labels as a detail list per icon. This would motivate the reuse of icons, because I would have a much more streamlined overview of all icons.

This would also make the list of icons more manageable: instead of altering an icon per label, I can change a group of labels in one alteration of an icon.

The disadvantage of grouping by icon would be that you can’t easily check whether similar labes have the same icon.

I beg to differ; if, in my vision, the icons get grouped and the list of labels containing an icon would become a detail (like in screen types), it would become even more easily to check. The overview would be more focused on that specific icon. If a similar label would have the same icon, it would still stand out.
