Comparison between window as is and possible change


this a request to solve a problem that affects function description and parameters, at least in Portuguese-Pt.

There are many functions for which the description shows cropped, even with the side bar fully sized.

Maybe, instead of a fixed description at the bottom of the sidebar, could be used a popup on mouse over a function name. Something like what happens with menu buttons.

Please ignore the image's faked colours, they are just to bring up attention.

Nice idea!
Not a defect but as enhancement

Drag the splitter between the function list and the description to resize the 
description part.

Yes, this issue should be interpreted as an enhancement, a feature request, thank you. My poor wording.

Yes, it can be resized but it's not intuitive. At least not for me, but I'm not a good example. The same list of parameters shows in the formula line, I also know that, but doesn't bring as much attention, I think.

It's just an idea.
