This one is 32x32, when all others 24x24.

I don't like this, it is too small for menu item, and too similar to
copy. Are these icons similar to microsoft/apple ones?

These too are very similar, maybe someone has some other idea what can
be displayed here?

As Jody said, it shouldbe in stock. This is even more useful than
text_bold or text_unindent, as mail clients, etc. can use it.

I think zoom icons are of general interest, I found them in


Not much apps have hint support, but this can change, so hint icon will
