migrated to ac20, where is the attribute modification icon (the hammer)?

It has gone from the Info Box to make the layer button a little bigger.
Apparently Graphisoft research showed that it wasn't used very much and in 'cleaning' up the user interface felt there was better use for the space it took up.
It is still available in the menu or as a tool button or CTRL+SHIFT+T is the shortcut.

Personally I would rather have the extra space for the layer name (as they have done) seeing as it is available by 3 other methods.
I just wish it was an option in the info box settings (Work Environment) as I am sure others would rather it was still there.

I really miss this icon. I use it daily. It is so annoying selecting different objects and changing layer or another attribute an it only affect one type of element.
