      Description

      Editing icons are sometimes messy and confusing, as well as being small and hard to hit on mobile platforms.

      This issue is about finding a solution that simplifies the display a lot by reducing available options, while trying not to slow things down for power users who are heavily engaged in creating/editing/moving/configuring activities.

      It needs to work on smartphones as well as on large desktops.

      There may be user preferences involved.
