comment Hypernym for “pens”, “pencils” & “erasers”?
@DamkerngT. Fair point. Also, it seems worth noting that most existing software (e.g. Photoshop) simply uses "Tools" in similar situations to this. Given the specifics of my own software (which are difficult to summarise in a stack exchange question) I may end up prepending "Drawing" or "Writing".

I agree with your advice, thanks. If nothing more suitable presents itself then I'll probably end up going with "Writing Tools" or "Drawing Tools", as a reasonable compromise between length and accuracy.

I quite like this, but I think that "markers" sounds a bit too much like a marker pen, particularly as the tools already include different pen types.

@Jay If the tab was to represent a list of tools that you could buy (which it does in one situation) then "pencil case" doesn't seem to quite work, as it sounds like you're buying the tool from a pencil case. Other than that somewhat picky reason, I admit it would be ideal.

Pencil case works in some situations (in fact, I already use the term in other places), however it's not quite what I'm after. I'll edit my question to provide a bit more context.
