At any time, a help function referred to as Tooltip is available in TVPaint Animation. Move the cursor over the icon for which you wish to obtain information (without clicking on it) and a brief description of the function of the icon you are pointing at will appear together with any associated keyboard shortcut.

Opposite you will find the description corresponding to the Stroke tool. If you wish to reduce the content of the InLine help or prevent it from appearing on the screen entirely, the corresponding options are available in the Help menu.

You can disable these Tooltips in the corresponding menu :
- entirely by clicking on None
- partially by clicking on Short (you will only have the name of the tool, without any explanation)

By choosing Full, you will be able to enable it back.
