TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Does anyone know of any resources for best practices for writing (and implementing) tool tips? I'm currently writing tool tips for all grid columns, field labels, and buttons (where needed), for one of our SaaS applications. Should they be more like a definition or a step? Should you ever address the user as "you"?
