Similar to the UI Paper Cuts thread, I would like to start a thread to collect lists of bad tooltips in Blender.
Unclear tooltips is very low hanging fruit but can be super helpful to users.
Tooltips are trivial to update and improve, but it takes a long time to look through them all. I would like to ask the community to contribute lists of bad tooltips, as well as suggestions on how to improve them.
I can then easily commit tooltip changes once they are reported in here.
What is a bad tooltip?
A bad tooltip is typically something that either:
- Uses unnecessarily complex internal jargon to explain end-user features
- Adds no extra information. For eg ‘Enables Feature X’. Yeah, thanks.
- Is wrong or misleading
I will make tooltip changes in batches, once there is a good list of suggestions
