Thanks. OK so that's -2 votes for a clipboard icon (you and Walter), and +2 votes for scissors (you and Simon). Your new clipboard visual is close to something I was also playing with after Walter's comment that he though the icon should indicate/represent the left Frame edge in some way. I'm not sure though that this approach leads to a clear visual for the user to understand (we don't visually indicate places/sides of the Frame in any other cases). Let's see if we get any more feedback from others, but Simon might want to go ahead land a version with the scissors visual if he's ready.

Yes I like it. More I think than the version I did as it is more visually distinct, especially as the Copy_to and Duplicate icons will sit right next to each other. I've removed the inkscape XML, tidied the code a little and added in the fill/stroke entities for user colour, happy to go with this if there are no other objections:

I'll login and hang around in case folks want to try and dig into some more topics (16:00UTC), though I don't have anything specific that I wanted to raise today. Had a very long/tough meeting with Sascha last week about Neighbourhood/NetworkManager (see meeting logs), but that is a huge rolling topic that touches many areas of Sugar design, can only imaging making much progress if we break it down into small, minimal impact tasks.
