Did you know that you can quickly get information about an element if you use the ALT and the Reset, when you have an element under your cursor?
Quick Info - Rather than using the Element Information dialog to retrieve bits of information about the selected element, simply use the Quick Info dialog. To do that, hover your cursor over the element and press ALT + RESET. The resulting compact dialog allows you to review and even edit the symbology values.
