Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 431443
Erroneous tooltips on the Inkscape main toolbar
Last modified: 2008-02-06 05:56:16 EST
Description of problem:
I was looking at the Inkscape program's physical appearance when I noticed
that the rotate-90-degree buttons (near the upper left corner of the window)
each show a tooltip mistyped with what looks like an HTML code.
The degree symbol in what should be
"Rotate selection 90° [counter-]clockwise" instead reads
"Rotate selection 90° [counter-]clockwise".
This is true for both clockwise and counter-clockwise buttons on the editing
toolbar immediately below the main toolbar, but I did not see any similar
problem with any of the other button tooltips or menu entries.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): The fine print in
the "About Inkscape" window says "Inkscape 0.45.1, built Mar 21 2007"
How reproducible: All three times that I opened the program, and every time I
hovered my mouse over the offending buttons.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Inkscape.
2. Hover mouse pointer over either 90° rotate button in the main toolbar.
3. Chuckle/groan in disbelief, at your discretion.
Actual results/Expected results: See description above.
Additional info: I attached a composite snapshot of what I mean.

Chris: Thanks for noticing. This is already fixed upstream. Prerelease of the
new version will hit Rawhide soon and we won't be fixing this in Fedora 7 and 8.
