Likewise, if both options are off, tooltip reads "Custom: Toggle grid and metronome (off)". Same is shown in the Actions list state column. The toolbar icon also shows the custom action being on or off.

However, I can also toggle either one of these options separately to opposing state. If I do that, tooltip won't read anymore on/off and action list won't show state either. And the toolbar icon will switch to off state.

This is no good, sorry. There HAS to be a way to be able to make this work. How about: if we have a SINGLE toggle action in a custom action, the toolbar button should show the toggle state if that custom action is assigned onto a toolbar?
Okay, thanks for the great explanation xpander. Based on what ED says it appears
we need a means of assigning whether it's an "on/off" action?
