Calltips have 1px line border and 1px line padding. Then comes the text with 5px left inset and font-dependent top ascent. It gives the text a cca half-letter wide padding on the left and right and just a 1px one on the top and bottom. It makes me fee uneasy seeing the text so squashed agains the corners. MSVS leaves a little more free space around the border.
I tried to increase the padding from 1:1 to 3:6 (W:H) and it showed quite pleasing look, what do you think? I attached a screenshot showing original and padded sample. I left the padding constants at the top of CallTip.cxx but if you feel that having it configurable is not an overkill, I can implement also messages to get and set it including SciTE properties.
