In 2016 I emailed a bug report to Binary Fortress about a small bug in TrayStatus whereby the tooltip for 'Hard Drive (_Total)' is incorrectly sized, resulting in its text getting clipped. It's the kind of bug that can be fixed in 2 seconds because it simply needs the text box to be dragged a couple of pixels bigger in the GUI designer. Now, 2 years later, a new version of TrayStatus is finally released. And guess what, in the intervening 2 years none of the developers could take the time to address my bug report.

It's quite disheartening trying to report bugs to this company sometimes. The time it took me to take a screenshot and write my email is longer than it would have taken them to fix it. And yet in the 2 years since they didn't bother. When it came time to finally release a new version, and they went down their list of bugs, at no point did any of them think "Ah, that's one I can fix in 2 seconds! And it's been on the list for 2 years!".

Sometimes it's hard to understand why others care so little.

It works fine for me, which may mean that the box actually needs to be sized according to display characteristics.

The reason yours appears to show correctly is because you are not using the Pro version. There is enough space in the tooltip for 'TrayStatus 3.2', but there is not enough space in the tooltip for 'TrayStatus Pro 3.2'. Hope this clarifies.
