I got into this topic by accident. Is this task about 16x16 icons? Could I get a screenie of the very part of GUI or a raw mock-up at least?

@Andrzej Ambroz (jendrzych), @William Reynish (billreynish) was going to contact you about the icon stuff we talked about here at the homestretch week.

But basically it's icons for selection tool modes similar to what you have in painting apps. For example in GIMP:

:( with words it's just great it's super clear, if you want it to take less space just make it a dropdown

@Andrzej Ambroz (jendrzych) Pretty much yes. 2nd row I think works best.

Maybe the first one (New) could just be a single box - I think there's no need for it to be so visually different.
