But wasn't that what was suggested? A regular tooltip when you hover a
disabled (greyed out) menu item? In the example of disabled Paste-item
it could simply state "Locked layer". It won't appear unless you hover
the disabled item. I can't see how that could be intrusive?

Well, you might have an idea there, but no other programs use that as
far as I know. Wouldn't it be better to do like other programs do? We
are already seeing a lot of users complain that Scribus does things
