  I would agree but for me the context menu way is one bit too long ("right-click, go down to Add..., click or wait to open, select item" instead of "left-click, select item"). And harder to discover.
  Would it help to add an option in the context menu to hide the new line edit buttons? :-) Or to somehow remove contrast from the icons?

I'll change that accordingly.

I looked at the Regex toggle button code:

  QIcon useRegExpIcon = QIcon::fromTheme(QStringLiteral("code-context"), QIcon::fromTheme(QStringLiteral("edit-find-replace")));

and didn't know that the second parameter is a fallback. I'll copy that.
