Yes, Tooltips is a tooltip *group*. A tooltip (without s) is just a string, 
you associate with a widget, and therefore cannot be “created” like an 

I think, I misunderstood your earlier mail. You said: “create new Tooltips 
every time”. You probably meant, creating a new object of type Tooltips every 
time a tooltip changes. However, I thought, you mean creating a new tooltip 
(singular) every time the signal changes. So I said that a tooltip (singular) 
cannot be created.

I would not create a Tooltips object (tooltip group) everytime, the tooltip 
signal changes, but only once per widget.

Best wishes,
