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
Remember to also update any help page that may be rendered outdated after making your changes :-)
Was going to log this myself against version 126.96.36.199. A tooltip needs to do more than repeat the name of the menu option it applies to!
I agree with Moray, also in LO 188.8.131.52 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.
