Hi Gustavo,

Please make sure of this. Try to follow exactly the info provided by the 
dialog and the tooltip and if you feel the tooltip is incorrect or 
incomplete, please browse the bug report and if you can't find this 
issue has been reported yet, then file a bug on that.

Tooltips must be helpful. Otherwise they need to be fixed.
