           Summary: image tool tip does not show all tags if too long
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: jjm at keelhaul.me.uk

Version:           1.0.0-beta1 (rev.: 977957M) (using Devel)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Compiled sources

If the combined length of an image's tag strings is too long, it is truncated
when shown below the image in the album viewer.  This is good, but there is no
way to view all of the tags completely - even in the image tooltip the tag
string is truncated in the same way.  The only way to view all of the tags
seems to be either to scroll up/down through the Caption/Tags tool pane, or
scan through "Remove tag" in the context menu.

Suggest that all of the tags should be shown, un-truncated, in the image
tooltip (in the same place as before, along with the caption/rating if
requested).  This would increase the vertical size of the tootip, but would at
least provide an easy way to view all of the assigned tags without ambiguity.

A screenshot of how the tooltip could look, and a patch to implement that, are
