Description

Currently the tooltip only duplicates the tool name. It could show the algorithm description from help instead.

History

#1 Updated by Alexander Bruy over 6 years ago

Maybe algorithm name used because in most cases description is not available? I would suggest to show description if possible, with algorithm name as fallback option

Fixed in 3.2, so long as algorithms implement the 'shortDescription' method (currently only GRASS algorithms do).
