Comment (by karmatosed):

 > I do understand the need for visual simplicity as well in the UI and
 I'll work on an extra iteration to show/hide the extra buttons while
 hovering over each postbox to clean up the UI. This would make it similar
 to how Gutenberg handles its own sorting actions at the moment.

 Thank you for understanding that. I really think if they aren't always on
 this will help a great deal in actually not being overwhelming as an
 interface. Could I find a bit more about what that icon represents? Is it
 to 'move' and drag because then I'd probably go with what is used already
 in the new editor:
