Current toolbar is very simple, but it is not suited to hold many of properties that we need. I suggest we add a new flexible toolbar, which has tabs on top, so the user can switch between different groups of properties.

@Tomaz, your recent commit to add a bottom toolbar looks good but I'm facing some layout issues. See the screenshot:
Nothing happens when I click on tabs/buttons etc.
I agree that we should organize it somehow, to avoid cluttering. Also, I imagined using a CoordinatorLayout, and the "toolbar" as the child of it, with BottomSheetBehavior. That way, it could have sliding gesture (like a drawer), and we could put even more options without sacrificing space.
