The tooltip for sidebars icon on spacing is misleading. It shows "Increase Spacing" but should rather be "Increase Paragraph Spacing" just to clearly separate it from other functions.

why? those spacing icons are below the "paragraph" section of the sidebar so it looks obvious to me that spacing refers to paragraph spacing.

@Adolfo @Jay
I'd like to hear your opinion about that.

Below the (paragraph) spacing is the line spacing, which is more important, IMHO, since most users separate paragraphs by line breaks. Tooltips of similar functions should always have similar text.

We discussed this in the design meeting and everyone did agree that it is suitable. The 'Spacing:' label has both paragraph and line spacing controls, so is increase and decrease buttons referring to changing paragraph or line spacing. Its about clarity and thats what tooltips are for, they should be as clear as possible, as we didnt use 'Above Spacing' instead of 'Above Paragraph Spacing'.
