Or a plug-in... plug-ins act quite difefrently to tools or actions.

Since the menus were reorganized I am constantly guessing wether "Repeat

you can't tell from the menu anymore.

Huh? Every dialog contains widgets that "change something", wether its an
options dialog, preferences or whatnot.

Tool tips are a very slow way of interacting with a user. Also, marking
dialogs by type has nothing to do with the "how-to-use" aspect.
