    Last I read there was no way to modify the tooltip text that appears when you hover over a tab. Is this still the case?

    The behaviour described in that post is still the same in all versions of XMetaL Author up to and including 8.0.

    What do you want to put in there? That is the type of feedback that is best submitted to XMetaL Support so they can properly track the requests (more companies that ask and / or the more seats that want the feature the more likely it will be added).

    In XMetaL Author Enterprise 8.0 you now have access to the following actions via context menu (right click) on a document tab:
    – Save
    – Close
    – Copy Full Path
    – Open Containing Folder

    Actions for manipulating “tab groups” are also available when multiple documents are open.

    The tooltip text is still the same. It shows the path to the document unless ActiveDocument.Title has been set.
