Description BdM 2016-02-28 09:22:50 UTC
Maybe it's a suggestion to add explanation of sign to 
insert - special signs

I was doubting wich one average was (by example)
When you give a small explanation like the blue

Like this

Good luck
and sorry if i post it wrong
plz let me know
and/or replace it. It's my first :)

Maybe this texts should be used for searching? Like searching for greek alpha - doesn't need to list dozens of symbols, just write "alpha"?

In the proposal for the improvement of the special character dialog (bug 34882), on the extended features is to include information tooltip about each character.

I'm sorry if you were true as if placed a duplicate

I suggested a explanation (small) by the sign in stead of all the other comments  34882

I didn't read that (or did i read badly?)
Comment 4 BdM 2016-02-29 11:16:28 UTC
thx for your extra info
i did not know my request was called "tooltip"

Maybe it i possibly i send email before i post something else
i use OO almost on daily base
and (in my opinion (not being always the truth) i always see "improvements) ;)
I am sick in rl and have a lot wasted time on my hands
but english in not my native (i'm dutch)

My suggestion / question / proposel:
If i (think) see something
i send mail to ??? (you?)
and only if i,m right i make new post
on this way i do not spend time from more important issues

Have a nice day

The explanation is never small, but yes it can be added to the dialog rather than being exclusively in the tooltip. I'll add the suggestion to the duplicate bug.
