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.
