Enable Hints menu entry/preference is confusing

    Details

      Description

      Story:
      As a user I see a menu entry and a preference setting that does not seem to do anything. I am trying to turn off these messages that keep appearing when I hover my mouse over something. Help, I am confused. What am I doing wrong?

      -Enable Hints seems like it should control tooltips, causing confusion ("I turned this off but am still getting those hints").

      -There are only 11 hints currently.

      -Only brand new users see hints, as once you see a hint you never see it again.

      -By the time a new user finds this control and figures out what it means (if they ever do) it is quite likely they have already seen all 11 hints.

      -There is no menu control or preference setting for tooltips, which are much more common.

      Practically there is no need for this item. I would like to hear what an XD person has to say.

      Option 1: Eliminate Enable Hints from the Help menu and Preferences->General.

      Option 2: Move Enable Hints to World->Show->Hints, eliminating it from the two places listed in Option 1.
