> Hi Ton,
> 1) Meaningless tooltips
> The "System info" menu has as tooltip "Generate system info". That's

> > that's very easy too miss.
> The problem is not in the tooltip, it’s in the implementation of the
> “System info” itself.
> In any other program when you choose “About” or “System Information”
> a window pops up with all relevant information.
> In Blender you choose “System Info” → then you change area type to Text
> Editor → then you select text data block from the list in the Text Editor
> header.
> Isn’t that over complicated for a simple “Sys Info” option?
> Solution:
> Make it behave similar to “User Preferences” option: when you choose “Sys
> Info” menu the new window pops up with “Text Editor” and sys-info datablock
> already selected.
> And no tooltip is required.
