Currently, some of the Tooltips of the buttons in the toolbar "Insert" include the word "Insert", while some don't. It reads "Insert Frame Manually", "Insert Endnote Directly", "Insert Fields", but "Table", "File", "Special Characters", "Formula", "Section", "Entry"... I propose to add the term "Insert ..." to all of the button's tooltips, because if the Insert Toolbar is docked, the user doesn't get a hint, that the buttons are adding new objects.

confirmed, tooltips should have consistent wording.

liz->os: I talked with cd about this and he says the central nameing is at fault. (i.e. one resource for all three: menu, tooltip, customize toolbar list) Making naming exceptions for some of the tooltips on the Insert toolbar and not for others appears to not be consistent, thus this issue. Is it possible for you to add strings as "contextlabel" to the resources so that the menu items are still only called "Table", "File", "Special Characters", "Formula", "Section", "Entry", etc, but the tooltips on the icons include the "Insert"? They would have to be separate resouces so the translations can be correct, but that may cause drawbacks in performance time. (We have to decide: Is it worth it to have a slower application so that these tooltips get separate strings?) The strings which include "Insert", e.g. "Insert Table" could then also be used in the Customize toolbar dialog lists so they are more explicit there, rather than only "Table", etc. Please advise about the possibilities. I suggest we also get designer input re usability. ccing CJ. Thx!

Certainly we can add ContextLabel entries. They have been introduced just for this purpose (in fact they were needed to support entries like "insert/graphic/from file" in menu vs. "insert graphic from file" in the toolbox)
