Tippy #07 - Hover Helps

Tippies can be quickly adopted with immediate workflow benefits...
  • Hovering is Helpful
Pointing devices (mouse, trackpad, pen, etc.) are used to move around in Hyperspace. When the pointer is positioned above an item (e.g. button, list row, StoryBoard section, icon, etc.) and left stationary for a few seconds, it is "hovering".

Responses to hovering are helpful. A popup display may show, giving more information about the item hovered (e.g., full list of meds when hovering over medication section of StoryBoard) or more information about what one can do. In many cases, the hover-message provides help about what happens if the pointer is clicked or what keyboard shortcut would do the same thing.

In Haiku or Canto, the functional equivalent is tap-n-hold.
