I just noticed that the status bar, aka notification region
is often empty. I click on the Rectangle tool and see the text "Drag to
create a r". I then move the cursor over the text, expecting to see a
tool tip with the full text of how to use the Rectangle tool but all the
text disappears. After doing this a few times I realized that passing
over the swatches causes the status bar to show the name of a swatch
(new feature in 0.47); when the cursor leaves the swatch area, the
Rectangle text doesn't reappear. This makes it impossible to read the
full text in the status bar for any tool (except the Tweak tool, where
the text is restored) unless one make an end-around the swatches
(difficult in full-screen mode). Can this be easily fixed?
