Summary0000980: Shortcut Display in Tool-Tip

An option in the Settings to display the Shortcuts to UI-Elements as all the Buttons and so on.
Many applications provide such an option to eneable od disable tool-tips with an option to display or hide the key combination of its shortcut.
I my self often enable such options and feel good with it, even if i remember the shortcuts after some time.
May this would also help new users to learn and get into openModPlug,
I even think this could be a step towards openEcoModPlug, just because less people would print out shortcut tables and in that way they would save some wood and this may gives a chance to new generations to keep on tracking.
I also think it could help users if they play around with custom shortcuts, here i would have a vision of normal slightly yellow tooltips with the name of the element and then each shortcut on a own line below the element name, but if there is a shortcut conflict the conflicting shortcut line is displayed slightly red within the slightly yellow tooltip.

Steps To Reproduce

open settings
search the new option hide or display tooltips
search the new option hide or display shortcuts in tooltips
check them as you like
put your mouse on a ui element or select it by keyboardcommands
wait some time
a tooltip will open with the name of the element and on each line its shortcut if there are multiple shortcuts and conflicting shortcuts will be marked.

Additional Information

many times i thoght about that
i think... if i remember correctly .. it is jeskola buzz with the F-Keys in the tooltips.
it happens many times when i see the tooltip in ModPlug that i think to my self "ah no it was the other one with the F-Keys in the tooltips".... i dont know why this comes always to y mind when i see this tooltips, actualy maybe because i try to customize them ;)

how ever i already start to feel ashamed about all the may minor issues i have opened here, but i realy do not think they are all bad at all, may you sleep a bit about it and let it roll in your head and ... hey, may you like one or an other idea too... ModPlug is great any way ;)

Thanks :)

There is no need to be an option - as in, there would be no single reason to disable this. However, many of the tooltips are not generated programmatically so it's currently simply not possible to add the shortcuts to those tooltips.
