Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-09-27 23:00:55 UTC
Presently, the changes toolbar has a number of tooltips that need improvement. Below are the ones that i think need changing, but these changes shouldnt effect their menu labels.

Show -> Show/Hide Tracked Changes, Show or Hide Tracked Changes, Show Tracked Changes

Record -> Track Changes to Document, Track Document Changes, Enable Track Changes, Enable/Disable Track Changes, Activate Track Changes, Activate/Deactivate Track Changes, Activate or Deactivate Track Changes

Accept or Reject -> Tracked Changes List, All Tracked Changes

Comment -> Tracked Change Comment

Protect Records -> Protect Document from Editing, Restrict Document Editing, Protect from Editing, Restrict from Editing, Protect Editing, Restrict Editing

Compare Document -> Compare this Document to Another, Compare Changes Between Two Documents, Compare Documents

Merge Document -> Merge this Document with Another, Merge Documents

Was going to log this myself against version A tooltip needs to do more than repeat the name of the menu option it applies to!
Comment 3 A (Andy) 2014-10-15 20:04:47 UTC
I agree with Moray, also in LO the tooltips only repeat the name of the menu item / icon and Jay lists already some proposals.

Therefore, I would agree that it would be good to improve the tooltips.

With the changes i made in bug 85046, the tooltips are now fine.
