A few popup dialog boxes in Lessons have title bars but are missing titles. Titles for these popup boxes can mitigate against disorientation, especially for first time users of Lessons. The dialog boxes I observe that are currently missing titles include:
Add Content (all three varieties of this popup)

Titles for these dialog boxes could be sourced from the existing pool of localized messages that are already used for the tool tips that are displayed when the mouse cursor hovers over the button that launches the dialog. In this case, the message properties to reuse would be:
Add Content: simplepage.add-content, simplepage.add-above, simplepage.add-item-column
However, if adopting this repurposing approach (as opposed to adding distinct message properties to distinguish dialog titles from tool tips), some institutions might want to revise existing tool tip messages so that they fit better within the dialog title bar. For example, I’d propose changing the US English version of simplepage.add-item-column from “Add new item at bottom of this column” to “Add Item to Bottom of Column”.
Soon I intend to upload to my github account a possible solution that reuses existing tool tip messages for the dialog titles.

Hi Sean Horner , does this also affect the 11 branch?
|Comment by Sean Horner [ 19-Jun-2017 ]|
Yes, the Sakai 11 branch on the nightly server exhibits the same problem; the dialog boxes I've listed are missing titles.

Verified that these titles are visible at the tops of the dialogs in Sakai 12.
