Hi,
we use desk tool and it`s very easy to use and save much time.
But I can`t find out how to view alt text for buttons.

For example:
I make buttons for folders. Icons are standard folder icons.
They all look same so how I know which is the one I need?
In properties I can write description but how can I display this text?
In XP tool bar when mouse is over button it displays alt text.

Thanks lot.

Hello Pit,

We will release displaying of buttons description (as wide button with text) in next version of DeskTool (now in work).
You can switch on button`s tooltips at Feature dialog (Properties... - Feature Page - Enable ToolTips) (by default enabled). Also you can control display speed of button`s tooltips at this dialog.
You can change buttons icons (to add difference of view of folder buttons) at button`s property dialog.
Thank you for your suggestions.

Best regards,
