Are you talking about the tooltips in the context menu?
It's strange because I already customized them with a longer showing time than the Windows standard.
Can you tell me how many seconds a tooltip stays on before disappearing in your system?

It's not customizable and it's exactly the time I set (5000 milliseconds).
Well it's not a problem to make it customizable, as anything in SyMenu, but before dedicating my time to this kind of requests, very peculiar indeed, I need to know what the other users think about that. Is there anyone else thinking this could be a useful option?

Since no user has supported your request until now, I won't fully implement the feature.

Anyway since I'm in Santa Claus mood in this period smile, with the next SyMenu version you'll have this workaround:
- run SyMenu 6.08 at least once;

- close SyMenu;

- open the file [SyMenu]\Config\SyMenuConfig.zip and unzip it. You'll get an xml file called SyMenuConfig.xml;
- open the file with a simple text editor;
- search for the string "tooltipItems". You'll find something like <tooltipItems enabled="True" tooltip="Shortcut,Path" duration="5000" />
- change the duration attribute from "5000" to "15000" (it's the value in milliseconds so you can put there whatever you want);
- save the file and repack it in the SyMenuConfig.zip;
- run SyMenu;
- your tooltips will remain open for 15 seconds.


Note:
- always backup your configuration file because is very easy to corrupt it if you don't know what you are doing;
- the workaround will work only with the next SyMenu version (v6.08).
