Add layout description/comment and display it in the layouts list

In a game with many levels there may be hundreds of layouts named like Level1, Level2, Level3 (to be able to use "Go to layout by name" action). It's very difficult to manage them when there is no description of any kind.

It would really help if there was an option to to add layout description. It may look something like this:

    Actually, with most form controls (text, etc.), after the 1-second hover the tooltip will remain, but change text for each form control.

    It can be in small font and below the layout name. And of course, not all layouts will need the description.

    Tooltip is not a good solution, because to find a specific layout you'll have to hover mouse over each layout for a full second..

    Seems like having the descriptions there would be a pain, because you would have to make your Projects bar be really big. Maybe a tooltip?
