Currently the main toolbar buttons tooltips have heterogeneous types of contents:
  • various glosses (eg. "Lire les textes", "Calculer le lexique d'une requête", "Construire une partition"...)
  • the name of the command (eg. "Propriétés", "Sous-corpus", "Lexique"...)
This can trouble beginners UX and slow their learning curve of how to call the right commands from various places:
  • a toolbar
  • the main menu
  • a contextual menu.


Set the toolbar buttons tooltips to the EXACT name of the command in the editors&view toolbars and in the contextual menus (eg. "Édition", "Propriétés", "Sous-corpus", "Partition", "Lexique", "Index"...).

Every toolbar of TXM is concerned by this UI policy.
