Are you able to reproduce that ?

Here are a few simplified elements in order to reproduce, in attahcment :

A few others features are impacted by this trouble :

  • show / hide functionality for collapsible tables ;
  • "show on select" capabilities.

It would really be great and very helpful if this problem is fixed someday ;-). Tooltips are very helpful and common to describe the meaning of each form field. Thanks!

It's true that SMW's #info tooltips don't show up correctly in new instances; I don't know when, if ever, that will get fixed.

However, the extension SimpleTooltip, which was released in January 2015, is handled correctly in new SF instances - that's one of the reasons it was created. Anyone should feel free to check out the extension here:
