One thing that still really bugs me though is that once the tooltip appears it stays stuck in place and doesn't move with your cursor. Very annoying, and blocks other things I am trying to look at. I want the pre-SU5 tooltips back! :_(

They continue being useful, as you get information at alt pressure, course at VOR and HSI, heading, etc. There should be a way to configure the text size

I am flying the Seminole now, and when you hover over the altimeter setting all it says is " Altimeter Setting", nothing else.

I would love to see almost everything pre SU5 back.

You can change the size of the tooltips, both new and legacy, by changing the overall user interface text size in the general options. Changes the text size and look of all text globally, of course, but not disastrously so. Still in caps, though. Also, fascinatingly, on the BlackBox Simulation's BN-2 Islander, the legacy version of the tooltips does show the variables settings when you hover over the switch or knob, so it is still possible, and therefore very easy for Asobo to turn this back on.

There are two sliders for tooltip size in Options General Accessibility (size slider and scale slider) default C170... Here both option sliders set maximum and minimum:

That can help, but unfortunately those sliders effect more than just tooltip size.
