As suggested in bug 93318 comment 9, the sheet navigation buttons should have tooltips, which should also expose their shortcut keys, as these buttons will likely not be included as entries in the menu.
We have shortcut keys for previous and next sheet, but do we have ones for first and last sheet?
Ctrl + Page Up - Previous Sheet
Ctrl + Page Down - Next Sheet
So we have uno commands for previous and next sheet (.uno:JumpToNextTable, .uno:JumpToPrevTable), so their labels and associated shortcut keys can be used as tooltips, but i couldnt find uno commands for first and last sheet.
You have fallen into the same "trap" as Heiko - "previous" "next" "last" "first" buttons don't change the sheet, just moves the view of the sheet tabs - so this proposal doesn't make sense. :)
Yes i was mistaken that the buttons dont change the sheet, but the buttons still do need tooltips for what they do.
First - Scroll Sheet List to Start
Previous - Scroll Sheet List Backward
Next - Scroll Sheet List Forward
Last - Scroll Sheet List to End
Plus - Insert Sheet
Alternative words for Scroll could be Slide or Move.

For the record, Excel only has two scrollers, which normally scroll one left/right, and have tooltips, but not for explaning normal use, they refer to possible usage with modifier keys:
- Scroll to the first sheet
- Scroll to the last sheet
Google Sheets also has two scrollers, they scroll to the beginning/end, the tooltips are:
- Scroll left
- Scroll right
Buttons are created in svtools/source/control/tabbar.cxx mpFirstButton..mpAddButton and can be assigned a tooltip per SetHelpText(). However, TabBar::RequestHelp() returns false for GetPageId() so no tip is show at all. Eike, any advice how to solve this? And how about hiding the scroll buttons unless overflow is required?
I like the idea of having only 2 scrollers instead of 4, and the function depends on whether Ctrl or some other modifier key is used (which is not an argument against hiding them when they aren't needed, just an alternative thought).
