tool tips
Is there a way to make the tool tips show up quicker when mousing over a toolbar?
First time it appears with ~0.5 s delay, but when moving to other buttons, appears immediately. Do you have longer delay?
Yeah, it seems like about 2 sec when I first then roll over then the next time I roll over the toolbar (having gone off) it takes about 1 second or so. If I stay on it, the second button comes up real quick though.

win xp sp2
512 ram
pentium 2 ghz
Run this macro and see what is in output and how then behaves QM floating toolbar.

Yeah, that's more like it.
I tested it on several different toolbars and it pulled up the tips right away. How do I make that change permenant?

Try to uncheck Control Panel -> Display -> Appearance -> Effects -> ... .

Or, use the QuickTooltips function that is attached. It starts when a QM toolbar is shown and makes its tooltips faster.

the display thing didnt work for me (probablly cz I'm using Litestep).
However, the function worked great!!!
