How can I change the text of a tooltip? For example, see this screenshot of a tooltip for "Gross Weight". The text reads "The gross weight in Kg". I would like to change this to read "The gross weight in lbs". Is that possible

You can achieve it using a specific module that inherit from the original one and redefine that field and change the help attribute like this:

class product_template(osv.Model):

_inherit = ['product.template']

_columns = {

                    'weight': fields.float('Gross Weight', digits_compute=dp.get_precision('Stock Weight'), help="The gross weight in lbs."),

hope it helps.
