How about floating, popup tool tips on just about everything? A switch to turn them off in the preferences?

RE: Basic beginner questions
Perhaps immodestly, I think I'm capable of handling a 'pretty complicated app'. But don't you think users deserve a few simple pointers, like what the heck the icons and red numbers mean? Especially if the app is 'pretty complicated'?
Thanks for those simple pointers, which help a lot. I've copied them to a note file for future reference. Is there really no Help file, or list of intro instructions for Cookie 5? Potentially a great app I'll probably keep, but a few pointers early on would sure help new users. Or at least some hover-over-tool-tips, maybe?
I mostly use Safari but also have Chrome for a few misbehaved websites. The Favorites column shows both browsers plus All. I finally figured out to check the missing blocks in All, which solved the funny check problem for Safari. BUT . . . Cookie doesn't seem to work with Chrome. All of the tracking cookies and old websites are still there in the list, even after I closed and restarted Chrome. What did I do wrong?
Basic beginner questions
Have I missed the basic Help file? Intro instructions?
I just bought Cookie 5 and have some simple questions: what do the heart, target and star represent? So far I'm assuming the heart indicates a favorite. Why are some of mine unchecked? Why can't I check a few of them? The checks disappear immediately. (Evernote, Goodreads, Hertz . . . ) Why are some of the numbers in the list shown in red as well as black? BASIC stuff . . . What else am I missing? Some simple instructions would sure help. Did I buy a beta version?
PS: I signed up based on the Macworld note. I'll be more cautious about those in future.
