Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-12-04 17:06:55 UTC
It would be useful to have a tooltip on the drop down that appears when you click on the button above the properties tab button. Something like 'Sidebar Settings' or 'Sidebar Properties'.
Comment 1 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2014-12-06 19:06:06 UTC
Indeed, valid enhancement request.

Best regards. JBF
