What this script does is simply to add a help window displaying descriptions of each item in the status menu. This was requested by someone who was having difficulty implementing something similar, so it's really a tutorial than a full script. I've posted it regardless in case others can use it.
Copy and paste it anywhere in Materials (or above Main) and it should work, as it's Plug 'n' Play. Additional instructions of use are in the script.
It's easy to modify, as there are only two sections where additional descriptions can be appended. Again, these are clearly definite in the script itself.
