Description of Button in Interface

Recommended Posts

When resting over a button, it looks like a description of the button pops up for a fraction of a second in the status bar area (bottom left of the screen) and is then replaced with "For Help, Press F1".

 

Does anyone know how to make the description stay there so we can see what the button does?

 

Thanks.

If you turn off tooltips, you can sometimes (but not always) make the statusbar descriptions stay visible:

 

In the menu, select "Tools->Customize", and on the "Toolbars" tab there's a checkbox "Show tooltips" that you could uncheck. Press Ok and you should be set. I you now move the pointer from the working area to a button it alway show the description. If you move it from one button to another it often doesn't.

 

I don't miss them myself, but if you do please file an error report at A:M Reports. (there is a link to it on this forum)

I believe this is a windows bug.
