Definition of Terms

Proposal by Mirek2
The button would represented by an icon with an associated triangle pointing down.
Tapping a pull-down button would execute a command using the last-used settings (or the default ones). Pressing on the icon and moving the finger in the direction of the triangle or long-tapping the icon would show a box allowing the user to change the settings for the command.
