I'm an absolute newbie to BG (I just finished the tutorial), but I'm having some trouble with the horizontal bar at the bottom, in particular the spells. I've figured out how to scribe, memorize and quick-slot spells, but since I'm new the symbol doesn't mean all that much to me yet. I'm playing on iPad by the way, so I figured press and hold on the icon would show the spell info. Strangely enough, sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn't! The only other way to see the spell info seems to be to click on the spellbook, find the spell in there and click on it. Seems very incovenient to me.
Am I doing it wrong? Or is this a shortcoming of the game (that could be fixed easily)?
