Description johannes.omvik 2021-02-22 11:56:42 UTC
I have a hard time learning coding in OF BASIC.
Take a long time to go back an forth to see the short description.
I think it is a quick way to help novice faster feeling home in the BASIC.
It need to be optional because I do not think professionals want this disturbance.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Press"Contents" to show content 
2.Stop cursor at any subject.
3.Popup-window will show a short description (as found in the document)

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Reproducible: Always

How would this be implemented in practice? Should there be a massive separate .js file storing all these description snippets? Should the content be fetched dynamically (this is probably not allowed in offline mode by browsers).
