    Issue

     

    The existing height resize button icons are confusing:

    ... because

    • they incorrectly depict the TOP edge moving (which does not actually move) and
    • the arrows show the OPPOSITE direction of the actual movement.
      • When resizing to smallest height the bottom edge moves UP, not DOWN, as depicted in the icon, etc.
    • => BAD UX & CONFUSION

     

    See the issue Confusing layout-tool icons: Resize Buttons corresponding to this idea.

     

    Idea

     

    Redesign the vertical-resize tool icons to show the actual movement of the bottom right-hand corner:
