Screenshot of property with an ellipsis

Currently the tooltip will say "Click to change value" when I hover over a truncated variable value which isn't very useful. I have to copy the value to another program to see the whole value at once.

We may still want a cap on the tooltip text so a crazy long string doesn't fill the whole screen but perhaps our tooltip code is already smart enough to do that automatically.

I personally don't think "Click to change value" is ever useful since the cursor already changes to a caret icon on hover.
