I have recently sent in suggestions for the improvement of the tooltips
'Nonprinting Characters' and 'AutoSpellcheck' as mentioned here  <
and i think all the tooltips need to be looked over with fresh set of eyes
and with the intention that it should be easily understandable to new users.
Here are some additional suggestions that i came up with for the standard

* Edit File => Edit Mode, Enable/Disable Edit Mode, Toggle Edit Mode, Toggle
Edit Mode & Toggle Read Mode [tooltip changes according to state]

* Export Directly as PDF => Directly Export as PDF

* Print File Directly (HP Laser Jet) => Directly Print to HP Laser Jet,
Directly Print to (HP Laser Jet)

* Page Preview => Print Preview Mode, Enable/Disable Print Preview Mode [the
icon is a printer and a magnifying glass]

* Spelling and Grammar => Check Spelling and Grammar, Run Spelling and
Grammar Check

* Hyperlink => Insert/Edit Hyperlink

* Table => Insert Table

* Show Draw Functions => Show/Hide Drawing Toolbar, Toggle ...

* Navigator => Navigator Dialog, Show/Hide Navigator Dialog, Toogle ...

* Gallery => Image Gallery, Show/Hide Image Gallery, Toggle ...

I'm making this suggestion after sending in the initial two suggestions, i
looked at the tooltips in Kingsoft and Micrsoft Office and feel that LibO is
far behind. MSO even goes beyond the standard tooltip and expands it to
include a title, description and image < >. 

If these suggestions are something that is wanted, i will be glad to send in
more suggestions.
