Responsive preview icons in Customizer need tooltips
|Reported by:||ahortin||Owned by:||iamjolly|
The new icons at the bottom of the Customizer for toggling the preview window of your site really need tooltips to indicate what they're for.
Just like the tooltips on the Visual Editor icons, other icons in the Dashboard should have tooltips as well. As leading usability expert Jakob Nielsen explains;
A user’s understanding of an icon is based on previous experience. Due to the absence of a standard usage for most icons, text labels are necessary to communicate the meaning and reduce ambiguity.
Even the Google Design Guidelines recommend tooltips for icons
I originally raised this as a post on the Beta forum but it was suggested that since it's getting late in the 4.5 release cycle it would be best to raise it as a Trac ticket.
