      Description

      In a ribbon, with a popup gallery displayed, tooltips for the
      JCommandToggleButtons appear behind the popup in the part of the popup that
      extends below the ribbon. In the part of the popup on top of the ribbon, the
      tooltips appear in the right place.

      This is much easier explained in the screenshot I'm about to attach.

        At the present moment, the solution would be to force heavyweight tooltips with
        ToolTipManager.sharedInstance().setLightWeightPopupEnabled(false). I do have
        long term plans to add "super tooltips" [1] to command buttons. Marking as
        WONTFIX since the setToolTipText on AbstractCommandButton will eventually be
        deprecated and forwarded to using rich tooltips.

        Thanks
        Kirill

        I've reworked my GUI to use a JCommandButton with a drop down menu; the zone
        names (what would appear on the tooltip) are mainly text anyway so I suspect
        this will be clearer to my users. So I'll live.

        Super tooltips would be really cool; I'm all for that. I read the linked
        article and took a look at the implementation in Word, and I think that's a much
        better approach to online help than others I've seen. Just my $0.02.

        Do you have a timetable for implementing super tooltips (3.1 or 3.2?)? This is
        probably a better question for your blog than the issue tracker...
