I think this is a good idea. We've always done a rather poor job of telling new users how to modify the panel and this helps a bit. Now let's wait for input from Plasma people.

+1 from me too. Makes sense for this particular application, and as a general principle, I think it should be mandatory for all icons-only buttons to have a tooltip so there's at least some explanatory text somewhere.

why all tooltips are so big
in windows and in gnome
they are smaller and still readable
what do u think

Not all tooltips are this big, this is just the special PlasmaCore.ToolTipArea Tooltip.

It does kind of bug me how different these types of tooltips look from the "standard" kind. They're much bigger and their backgrounds are light instead of dark. I wouldn't mind seeing their appearance tweaked to better match other tooltips.

Material for another patch though. :)
