My 2.8 final release for Win7 64-bit ( with EEVEE compatible Quadro graphics ) only shows Tool labels when mouse-hovering over each tiny icon at a time. I want to learn on a version that still has the WORD labels ( like all the previous versions ). I still use 2.79 with a bunch of purchased addons.

  • $\begingroup$ Can you clarify what you mean by "word labels"? Do you mean the Python tooltips? $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Sep 28 '19 at 0:26
  • $\begingroup$ rjg asked >>>Can you clarify what you mean by "word labels"? Do you mean the Python tooltips? <<< . . . Preferences has the checkbox option to 'Show Tooltips'. For every version in the past 5 years, AND several (at least) months of 2.8 beta releases, the word label of the Tool was on the screen. My 2.8 ONLY shows teenie tiny cryptic ICONS until I mouse-hover and WAIT over each one ( and that is only because I checked 'Show Tooltips' in Preferences ). I want WORD LABELS ( like ALL previous versions ). $\endgroup$ – joe Sep 28 '19 at 1:37
  • $\begingroup$ You HAVE NOT answered my question. For many years, the Blender site had a Directory with previous versions. This is hidden now. You can go through the past year of BlenderArtist and see MANY screenshots of pre-release 2.8 showing the labels. I want the most recent Beta that STILL HAD them before they were REMOVED. $\endgroup$ – joe Sep 28 '19 at 11:00

    $\begingroup$ You can expand the toolbar, as mentioned in the manual: "Expand the Toolbar to show icons on two columns instead of one or even more to show icons with titles." $\endgroup$ – Sanne Sep 28 '19 at 13:20
  • $\begingroup$ @Sanne you're right, my bad. I totally missed that. Can you add that as an answer? $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Sep 28 '19 at 13:26
