I like the idea of checking the tool to allow cloning at sizes below 9 by 9
if it were not for the use case that copying/pasting a graphic smaller than
9 by 9 is possible while the graphic tool is active.
This is where checking for the tool would fail and the graphic would be
pasted at default dimensions.

This leaves changing the "newGraphic" handler wholesale (without considering
the tool) to values smaller than 9 by 9 e.g. smaller 6 by 6 to cover most
common use cases and still let the IDE prevent user mishaps by converting a
new graphic to default 120 by 120 if the newly created graphic is smaller
than 6 by 6. 

Kind regards
