#141 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Change the default type of quick helps

Release Notes:



By default (in MUI prefs) the quickhelps are preimposted as "comic bubbles" instead of "rectangles"
(Help —> quick help look —> comic bubbles)

However default AmigaOS helps are in general showed as rectangles

Enhancement recommendation

In order to follow the same standard everywhere in the system i think it would be better to change the current MUI quickhelps by using the option "rectangles" instead of the "comic bubbles" one

Yeah know, I always thought it was the Bubbles, even back in it's heyday that gave MUI it's real charm.

I must second djrikki here. Although the original task is "to mimic the default look of AmigaOS4 as much as possible" certain visual effects should stay as they are, especially when they are typical MUI effects since ages. The comic style bubble help definitely belongs to one of these.

Of course at the end it's a matter of taste no doubt, those bubble looks a bit "unserious" to me :-)
