Make more right tooltips for tools on Drawing toolbar in Draw
We have now:
tool's names - its tooltips:
Lines and Arrows - the same
Curves and Polygons - the same
Connectors - Connector
Basic shapes - Insert Basic Shapes
Symbol Shapes - Symbol
Block Arrows - Arrows
Flowchart - the same
Callouts - Callout
Stars and Banners - Star
3D-Objects - 3D Objects
I suggest to change tooltips
Steps to Reproduce:
we doesn't have the same tooltips as toolbar names
we'll have the same tooltips as toolbar names
User Profile Reset: No
Not clear this should be done piecemeal, and as the strings are localized/translated can be considerable difference between the UNO command name and its tooltip.
Also, either Tooltip or its extended tooltip (ahelp bug 118148 from local help when installed) are distinct from the UNO control name, and IMHO it is not incorrect for the short tooltip name not to match the control name.
Jay and Maxim had considerable discussion about how they all are handled in see also bug 108458 affecting the Customize dialog.
See attachment 141821 [details] from bug 122237 for a table of UNO commands any of which that could have naming issues as configured.
Not saying this does not need work, but it should probably not be done toolbar by toolbar.
I agree with Roman to aim for consistency. The topic arose after some floating widgets can be detached into own toolbars and those take the tooltip as name.
Not a big deal for translators to adjust the tooltip equally to the name. In general, I would make tooltips more informative, though it makes not much sense here.
This idea is just about consistency - the tooltips for docked toolbar widgets should be the same as the title of the floating widget. Go for it.
