Not I. There is rarely any need for a tooltip to use more than one line. And
this case certainly doesn't require it.

Why would a tooltip, which is already contextual, need to explain what its
context is, what it pertains to? Why would it need to say "For this window
of the frame"? If it is not clear enough without that context explanation,
then there is something wrong with the UI beyond just the tooltip text.
