Yes, with pleasure:

Let's put it the most simple way:

1. Here is my new-link definition:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (org-link-set-parameters "new-link" :help-echo "show new-link's help echo")

(it doesn't change matter, if there would be :follow or :store function etc.)

2. the 'tooltip' shows my :help-echo string as expected.


3. Then I add the following abbreviation of the above link:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (setq org-link-abbrev-alist '(("nl" . "new-link::%s")))

4. the 'tooltip' does not work but shows the default:


Hope that clarifies the issue.

Thanks once more for your sustained patience making link handling much
easier and more powerful!

that isn't a feature I have used too often. Could you post a small example that illustrates the problem? Thanks,

The new link parameters are fabulous!

Only the parameter ':help-echo' seems not to be respected, if a link is used by an abbreviated form as defined by the 'org-link-abbrev-alist'.

Would be nice, if this could be fixed.

Anyway, thank you for this big step forward,
