no ruler tooltips

Postby rocket777 » Wed Feb 01, 2017 4:49 am

When I hover over a ruler (or just to either side) I expected a tooltip. I don't get that, but the cursor changes to indicate I can move the ruler. Is there a setting to enable the tooltip?

I have just tested this with the latest version of the software, 6.12.5, and if you hover over the rulers you get an indication of which ruler it is, and the value it is at. Which version of software are you using ?

The only rulers this does not apply to are the Phase Rulers, Green Circle at the bottom right, which leave a permanent indication of their value.

Thanks, when I installed the latest version on my win 10 system, it works. I have a small netbook for portability where it's still running win xp, and only the next to latest version is available. That's the place it does not work. Maybe this was an added feature of the latest version.

Yes, I have just checked and it was added in the 6.12 build. You learn something new everyday :)
