My first post: Identifying tool icons
« on: April 22, 2020, 09:06:56 pm »
I'm using a Dell laptop computer with Windows 10.  I just downloaded Scribus 1.4 a week ago.  When I hover my mouse pointer over the various tool icons, I get no popup text identifying the tool.  Is that something I can change or fix?

you might like 1.5.5 better

this may be true – but this mouse-over help should work in 1.4.8 as well…

Yes, it should, but it doesn't. Can it be fixed by me or is there a workaround?

i don't see any way to activate / deactivate the tooltips for scribus.

one possible cause would be that Qt (the framework is using) is getting too much information about your trackpad / mouse and it never gets to a state where it thinks that there is no movement...
but it's just a wild guess...

It's very inconvenient not to be able to see the text accompanying the tool icons. It's interesting that it works on this forum reply page.

if your running any other programs along with Scribus, IE a web browser, try shutting those down and just run Scribus

I stumbled across the answer to this:  go to help, put a check mark in the "tooltips" box.
