Hi Werner,
* It uses tooltips for documentation.
Enlisted, will add tooltips after the GUI is about to complete.
* It provides two different layouts, depending on the available
   horizontal and vertical space, see attached images.

As for adaptive layout... I'll set it as a future task with a lower priority. I 
can think of a few locations in the current `ftinspect` version where adaptive 
layout can be used, but honestly, it may cost some tome to learn how to 
implement this in Qt.

BTW, I downloaded the Windows binary of `TTFautohint` tool, but it didn't 
re-layout when I change the window size. A quick skim at the source code 
indicates that the layout (vertical/horizontal) is only decided when the 
program starts. If you mean this extent of adaptive layout, it should be not so
