Description msk 2012-11-27 14:40:31 UTC

  When you hover (move mouse under) the function name with 'CTRL' button pressed\
IDE shows the tool tip. But if it contains a lot of text there is no way to read the information that is not visible currently.
I this it'll be very useful to add scrolling there.

Thank you.

Reply from Mikhail : 

Yes. If I am writing PHP code :
  strpos($needle, $haystack)

and trying to get information about strpos function it shows tool tip
and it is impossible to scroll text in helper window
