If they add more information than already available (like showing the
module icons) then I think tooltips would be fine.

That menu would contain the Configure action currently shown as a
toolbutton, plus all the actions we currently have in the dropmenu of the
current Help toolbutton.

It wasn't deliberate on my part, it just naturally flowed out of the forum
design thread. I agree though, I'm rather in favor of it.

yeah, that part is admittedly aspirational at the moment but better to put
the idea out there as a potential opportunity to perhaps consider in the
longer term rather than something that should prevent anything else from
being implemented in the near term. :-)

 Thanks much for the feedback David. Please let us know if there is
anything else we can do from our (VDG) end,
