If I'm silly enough to move my mouse near the bottom of the button when issueing a command order

Btw the UI looks really nice!

I'll get to this, because it bugs me too; I just have to decide where I'm going with all the tooltip stuff.

I tried to do a quick fix for this as my first attempt of modifying the lua scripts.

From luaui/gui_chili_funks_cursortip.lua, the two if-statements under the comment:

    local function MakeToolTip()
            local tooltip               = tooltip
            local x,y                   = mousePosX,mousePosY
            local textwidth             = tip.font:GetTextWidth(tooltip)
            local textheight,_,numLines = tip.font:GetTextHeight(tooltip)
            -- Making sure the tooltip is within the boundaries of the screen
            if (x + 20 + textwidth + 10) > screenWidth then
                    x = screenWidth - 20 - textwidth - 10
            if (y - 20 - (14 * numLines + 2)) < 0 then
                    y = 14 * numLines + 2 + 20
            tipWindow:SetPos(x + 20, screenHeight - y + 20, textwidth + 10, 14 * numLines + 2)
            if tipWindow.hidden then tipWindow:Show() end

Those magic numbers (+20, +10, +2..) are a little ugly. Fixing them, I assume, requires some variables for the padding and changing all the occurrences of constant numbers with those variables.
