The bar at the bottom left behaves differently than I remember
« on: December 28, 2016, 10:47:59 pm »

I remember the bar at the bottom left displaying the name of the tool as well as the hot key for it when hovering over tools. It doesn't do that now. I even tried re-downloading it from the main page as well as the build listed in the forum, no dice.

While I don't personally need the hotkeys, I was going to mention it as a useful tool in my tutorial series. Does anyone know how I can get it to pop back up again?

Click on the Options->ToolTips menu item to enable Tool Tips. Sometimes Anim8or turns it off when running different versions. I haven't been able to find the cause, but then I haven't looked too hard :)

Thanks Steve, I probably miss-clicked it at some point when trying to check the "info"

I've done a bit of research on it, as I've been giving private tutoring to students as a case-study to see what kinds of explanations are more effective. But otherwise I have been working on things to give the video series more production value, like having it expressed as a cartoon itself.

In the past I used to make some ultra-steamline quick tutorials, but according to the feedback, while it was an effective video series, people complained that it was a bit robotic and maybe a bit too fast paced. Soo for my new series I want to make it a more fun- light hearted cute series that, maybe can even stand on it's own as entertainment if your not super into learning the techniques.
