Model editor tree items: color-coded buttons please!

edited May 8, 2019 in Ideas
Buttons on model editor items other than the delete button should not be red.
Dev note: the different button types should each have their own classes (each with their respective function-matched colors) for the buttons to inherit colors correctly as they all currently belong to the same class of objects.
i.e. we currently have:
I want:
And deleting like below
should be very visually different from adding elements as such:

    TOTALLY Agreed - we need different styles for action buttons that create, modify, and delete. It's way too easy to accidentally click on "destructive" buttons right now without triggering a "DANGER! DON'T CLICK THIS!" impulse in the brain, when all you were trying to do was click on a different red button next to it which, unintuitively, is non-destructive. And conversely, your brain fears to click on these non-destructive red buttons when they're actually quite safe! 

    Under consideration!
