Can you please be more specific. What is missing?
At the bottom of Object Inspector there is an info box which shows the documentation for a selected property. It is visible also in your screenshot.

Considering that I had helped improving this back with 0018258: you need to enable the hints for the object inspector in Tools -> Settings -> Environment -> Object Inspector -> Show hints in Object Inspector. Though you should not hover too long over a property name as then the simple hint for the name will be replaced by a hint showing the documentation for the property.

Yes Miloš, the Show hints option does what you are asking. Are you happy with this solution?

There are 2 kinds of hints there. One is the property name or value shown completely when it does not fit into the cell. Another is a description of a property and value.
Those 2 were mixed in an unusable way.
I changed it so the name/value is always shown in a hint in case it does not fit.
The Option "Show Hints" now affects only the description hint.
Please test.
