Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 251439
Ri-li menu item tooltip is not GNOME HIG compliant
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:12 EST
Description of problem:
According to GNOME HIG a menu item tooltip should be phrased as a transitive
verb. Ri-li's menu item tooltip ("Arcade game where you drive a toy wood
engine") is not phrased as a verb. Maybe "Drive a toy wood engine" would be better.
Affected file is /usr/share/applications/fedora-Ri-li.desktop
GNOME HIG is
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Fixed in CVS, this will get picked up with the F-8 mass rebuild.
Note, please do not file more of these, Ri-Li is not a GNOME program, and even
for GNOME programs the HIG is wrong. In this case your suggestion is OK, but for
example with spreadsheets there is little use in having all 3 off oocalc,
gnumeric and siag say: "perform calculation, analyse information and manage
lists in spreadsheats" as tooltip, it is be much better to use the tooltips to
describe the program in such a way that the differences become clear.
