Description

On my non-widescreen monitor, the form for adding/editing authority records and a few others take up most of the screen width so tooltips on the left are mostly not visible. Tested on monitor with 1280 x 1024 resolution; OK on wider screens. Compare the width of the form for descriptions. This happens for:
- authority records
- repository (ISDIAH) records
- functions
- and would also happen for terms if there were any tooltips

Tested with both Dominion and Archives Canada themes, 2.0.0 - 100.

Instead of changing the number of layout columns used, tooltips for these forms have been moved into the body of the record. When a user clicks into the field, the tooltip will appear below.

Note: this was also the behavior in 1.x if I remember well.

Not so (unless it was much earlier) - in all 1x themes, the tooltips are on the side of the record, and a different column layout was used - see for example the attached screenshot from Trilium. However, I think the solution applied here works well, and it's nice that the fields all have more screen real estate for data input.

Oh you are right :)
