No tooltips in Avant

Post by mbrazil » Tue Nov 01, 2011 2:33 am

I don't get tooltips when I hover my mouse cursor over any part of the Avant UI. I can hover till the cows come home, and nothing ever happens. No tooltips on tab buttons, toolbar buttons, anything in the side bar or the status bar. Nada.

I do get tooltips in my other apps, and I get them when I hover over buttons in the Firefox add-on bar in Avant. It's just the objects that are part of the Avant UI that don't show tooltips.

Really? That's strange. It happened after you installed the 2012 build 3?

I don't have this issue...Check the following setting:
Go to Tools->Customize buttons->Standard buttons->Text options and select No Tab Labels.

Do you have a Customize buttons option under the Tools menu? I don't. Customize buttons is in the context menu for the toolbars, and the option there is No Text Labels, not No Tab Labels. I've had mine set to No Text Labels for many, many years and versions. This wouldn't have anything to do with not having tooltips in other parts of the UI, like the Status bar, anyway.

I don't know when it started. I only noticed it because tooltips for the security icon in the status bar were mentioned in another topic, and when I checked mine, there was no tooltip for the lock icon. Then, I checked around and found I don't get tooltips in Avant at all, except for the ones generated by Firefox for the add-on bar.

Sorry,I got it wrong the option is under View menu. According to my experience, for preventing any program from conflicting with avant browser,I will end all processes unncessary from the task manager, and restart Avant Browser to check whether the function works again.

AbelAbel,

Doesn't "Text Labels" refer to text which appears ON a toolbar button rather than text appearing in a tool tip box UNDER a button?

For example, you may customize a buttons to show (in the case of the "New" button): (1) No text (a piece of paper icon), (2) Selective text (the "new" button, and a few others, will show both the icon and a word, such as "New", to the right of the icon), or (3) Text on all buttons, beneath the icon.

Alternatively, the "tool tip" for the New button pops up only when the cursor is resting on the button, and it reads "New tab (Ctrl+N)".

brawnymike, you're right. I'd thought only having No Text Labels selected the tip box can show up. :)

It works if you uninstall and reinstall Avant?

I'm not sure what you're referring to as "windows items", but the tooltips for the minimize, maximize, and close buttons do appear. Also, the tooltips for the buttons in the Firefox add-on bar (generated by Firefox, not Avant) do appear. It's only the tooltips for parts of the Avant interface (tab buttons, toolbar buttons, status-bar icons, etc.) that are not there.

No change in Build 6. Still no tooltips.
