W3 Tooltip Creator is a program that will help mapmakers creating tooltips.
The program features Rich Text Editor, Tabbed Interface, Own file format ( .TCF for normal files and .TPR for project files ), Creation of Warcraft 3 codes from rich text and vice versa , Ability to rapidly create hero level descriptions, Tooltip Previewer, Create tooltips in warcraft-like interface, Gradient text support, Tray Icon, Color Picker, Ability to edit and save Warcraft III map custom strings. Project is also open source
the "Editor" tab is the preview. basically this is a WYSIWYG tooltip creator. you press "Generate source" and creates w3 color text from the rich text in the editor. or you can even convert existing w3 codes into rich text format.
I used it for some time, but now I realy can't recommend it to anyone. I lost data several times for no apparent reason.
Why does it asks me several times, to save stuff, if I just want to close an already saved file/project, and then not saves/ deletes all information anyway?
I need something more reliable. Also, why are there "Files" and "Projects"? Isn't one type of data enough for a text file?! Since you allow to work with tabs anyway... (Look at Notepad++)
However, it still helped me to speed up my work flow. The basic function to generate colored tooltips works flawless. Only above mentioned features are questionable in my opinion.
