Main toolbar in dev shows Map tooltip

Postby R2T1 » Sat Apr 09, 2016 2:32 am

I don't know if this is intentional or not, but just noticed that the main DEV window layout shows what looks to be a tooltip above the Map tab when it is showing. Neither the Home or View tabs do this. See attached image.
Should this be reported as a bug or not?

I had never noticed this before and I wonder if it has only just started to appear in v.5.0.34? There is an issue with the map if you have it floating, as I do when I display it, as if you move the map the map tools tab disappears. This has already been reported long ago:

rofl last week I managed to close the map some how and didn't know how I did it. Took me some time to figure out on how to get it back, Since the map tab disappeared.

It's not a bug, it's a context-sensitive tab group. You can see the same thing in Office applications if you go into a different mode, e.g. if you select a Table in Word you get a "Table Tools" context-sensitive tab group. It basically means the tabs within that group only appear if a particular mode is enabled. In the case of ADRIFT, that occurs when the Map is open. It's not ideal that the text is truncated though.
