Summary0003160: Add more status bar tool tips when tools are selected to give hints on usage.
Description"The only thing I would add, is that although Scribus is targetted as a
Professional level DTP tool, it would still be handy to have some kind
of tooltip, or mention of how to scale the images uniformly in a status
bar area, just like Inkscape do. Inkscape provide this extra info along
with most of the functions in their lower status bar. The info changes
accordingly to the tool used. I've been using Scribus since vers 0.5 and
I'd never cottoned on to how to scale images proportionately. Sometimes
making these extra little bits of info available dynamically makes a big
difference to the real usability of an application."

This is a *very* good idea! Lots of apps don't have that onboard and the users are left with no other choice than learn by guessing. This will help enlarging the number of people using efficiently Scribus *and* will give them an opportunity to enlarge their knowledge of DTP as well.

D'une pierre, deux coups!
