File Name Tool Tips

Thursday, April 10th, 2003 @ 9:15 pm | Mac

I just noticed that OS X draws tool tips when you hover over long file names in Open and Save dialogs. Has OS X done this in the past or is it new with 10.2.5?

    Yeah, it looks like open/save file name tooltips are new. I tried a Safari save before installing 10.2.4 and there were no tips, and now, after the install, there are tips.

    Nope; I haven’t gone to .5 yet (dialup aaargh) and it works for me.

    Alright, so I’m not that observant. I just checked it out on a 10.2.4 machine at work and I saw the tooltips (in BBEdit). Wonder why I didn’t notice them before.

    Also, I still think the file name should be included in the Open dialog info pane… and said info pane should get a vertical scroll bar if data extends below the viewing area.
