Feature request #3619
[FEATURE] Extended tooltips for tool bars
|Category:||Documentation and Help|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||13678|
Attached is a patch that I have been working on that adds more information to most tool tips to explain what the tool does. I think this would be good for new users to qgis. See image for example.
I have done most of the main ones but will work on more over time.

1. I believe the first change in the diff (add a QToolBar) is a mistake?
2. I'd move styles outside the strings (though I'm not sure how to do it - does widget css support also tooltips?). Translating these strings would be very unpleasant.

In http://developer.qt.nokia.com/wiki/Qt_Creator_Translation_Page you can read:
In Qt 4.7, ALWAYS use the source tab of the Designer rich text editor and verify that you do not get unneeded HTML annotation created by the automatic conversion from the rich text editor tab. Reason being that it contains a lot of stylesheet information and hard-coded fonts that look bad on other platforms and are almost impossible to translate in Linguist (which does not have an HTML editor).
Qt Designer 4.8 has a feature simplifying the rich text (on by default), still, you should verify by looking at the source tab.
So we all gotta wait for Qt4.8 to use it - and still have to be careful ..

Hello, bug triage...
it seems that the tooltips of the majority of QGIS tools are simple tooltips without styling information. They are all (well, a majority of them) correctly translated.
So what do we do now with this feature request ? Do you think we could have a better tooltip with style (but we have to deal with the translation problem) ?
Or perhaps tooltips should be kept simple and concise (read here ) and this feature request can be closed ?
