Multiline descriptions in tooltips
It is a known issue that Blender's tooltips are useless in a lot of cases. One reason for this, is that the descriptions of the tools need to be really short, in order to prevent oversized tooltips. Developers have to think of a description that is really short but delivers all the information needed. This leads to useless descriptions, making the tooltip itself useless.
Allowing multiline description allows descriptions, which can carry far more information without creating oversized tooltips.
Just as an example to see what is possible:
In my personal vision, all tooltips should show the name of the operator/enum item/... and a short description consisting out of a few sentences (max. 2-3 lines). Therefore some further steps are needed:
- Support descriptions for all Buttons (descriptions in tooltips are currently only implemented for enum-typed buttons afaik)
- Rewrite a lot of tooltips to make use of multiline descriptions (I'll do a “tooltip marathon”, to update as much tooltips as possible, soon. If anyone is interested to help, you're welcome :)
