Broken: version: 2.93.0 Beta, branch: master, commit date: 2021-05-01 15:22, hash: rB7c5e00965533
Worked: unknown

Short description of error
In the movie clip editor, in the left sided track menu under the track subheading, I was trying to find out what the different buttons do exactly. However for each button in the same row (track, clear and refine), the same tooltip is shown.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

Can confirm. Will write a quick patch.

Sergey Sharybin (sergey) edited projects, added BF Blender (2.93); removed BF Blender.

The change is quite simple, so might be fine for the 2.93 release. However, would like to know opinion from the interface and i18n team: do we accept changes which introduce new strings to be translated during bcon3?

@Sergey Sharybin (sergey) in that case I would say yes.

Regarding i18n, in BCon3 we try to avoid modifying existing messages (unless there is a very strong reason to do so), but adding new ones is fine.

Thanks for picking this up. The patch is still missing individual tooltips for the clear and refine buttons (although they are a bit more self-explanatory).
