Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-11-23 08:07:55 UTC
Five sections of the statusbar in Impress/Draw do not have tooltips. If i had to give them tooltips they would be something in the lines of:

1) Object details
2) Mouse position (when an object isnt selected) / Object Position X and Y (when an object is selected)
3) Object Width and Height
4) Slide number in document
5) Slide Master name. Right-click for list and double-click for dialog.

Please add keyword 'needsUXEval' and CC 'libreoffice-ux-advise@lists.freedesktop.org' if input from UX is needed.
