Re: stopping the word clickable.


The help section you tab to when on the attributes settings says something about changing things in a different part of settings, not in that dialog.  Every item in the quick settings tree view has a a help field you can tab to from the tree view.  You can move around it and read it as in any edit field.  I think if you tab to it, it will read automatically,  If it doesn't, you can read it as you would any edit field, using read to end, by line, etc.
