Balloon Help

Postby kieran » Mon Nov 13, 2006 9:21 pm

Hi Jeff,

Something that I reckon would be great for Beertools Pro, would be balloon help.. where you hover the mouse pointer over something, and it gives you a little 'bubble' of info to describe, say, an acronym, or a helpful bit of info to get the novice going. Obviously, the advanced expert would find it annoying, so such a feature should be able to be inactivated on a menu or something. :)

anyway, just an idea,
cheers,
Kieran

Maybe not as convenient as balloon help, but we are planning on placing help buttons scattered throughout the interface that will open the applicable help topic. What do you think?

That would be a great feature. I hope it becomes a reality.
