The problem with tooltips is that they require the user to fiddle with 
the cursor to know that they're there. I think tooltips are a good 
reminder about things, but not good as a primary source of information.

It would be more intuitive to have a message where the choice for X-3 is 
made: "Info String required", perhaps even have the place for putting 
the info string on the same tab as the button to choose X-3.

Another option might be to have a message to check the Help browser 
about X-3 (provided there is something in Help about this issue).
