* Provide only one toolbox for your application.
* Use a [[../SOU_Workspace/Toolbar/Docker|docker]] for the toolbox.
* Use the header "Tools".
* Make a toolbox two items wide by default.
=== Tool appearance/behavior ===
* Use only icons in the toolbox, assign a tooltip to each tool.
* Make the tools modal.
* Provide a simple selection tool and make it the default when the application is started.
