When a user is newcomer, then he will read tooltips thoroughly. But show time of tooltips is so short to read 2-3 sentences and understand them. On the contrary for experienced user tooltips are less important, so they can annoy them.

The solution is - to make this time adjustable in preferences.

    Sometimes user could want to meditate upon documentation. In this case could be useful to fix tooltip until mouse go away (if it is possible technically). Or another wariant - show window with doc by pressing shortcat. But in a second case this feature is needed for menu tooltits also.

    I wish there was a way to change the delay based on the size of the tooltip, but this is not possible.
    I didn't add a preference, so I'm not closing this feature request, but I increased the dismiss delay to 10s.
