Can someone please tell me how to enable user tips in V7? It was a simple check-mark in V6.1 but I am not able to find the corresponding function in V7.

Thank you in advance

Now you can view it by hovering on the label if it has any help tooltip.

You can add help tooltip in py by

_columns = {
        'example':  fields.char('Example', help="Example Help message."),

No, you still can hover at any label and get the tooltip if available.
