Sorry, this is a very minor (micro) issue but here goes...
The path seperator for hints is not consistent.
If you open a project, open a file, and click on the history tab the hint when the cursor is hovering over the IDE tab displays the path using "/" e.g. "C:/Projects/Main.cpp".
But if you place the mouse on the first pane of the IDE status bar (where the name is displayed)
the hint will say "C:\projects\Main.cpp".
Minor point...
Steps to Reproduce:
1) Open project Samples\Welcome\Welcome.cbx
2) Open the file main.cpp (if it isn't already)
3) Click on the History tab
4) Hover the mouse over the bottom status bar where "main.cpp" is displayed
5) Note the hint text is "C:\CBuilderX\samples\welcome\HelloWorld\main.cpp"
6) Hover the mouse over the "main.cpp" tab
7) Note the hint text is "C:/CBuilderX/samples/welcome/HelloWorld/main.cpp"

The severity of this bug report is clearly wrong (sorry).
Unfortunately using the web client I cannot edit my own bug report.
I will report a bug about the web client, and try to amend the severity of this bug via different means.
