Fixed by adding "Select Item" string in tool_sch.cpp & help_common_strings.h

Also changed "highlight net" to a static string in help_common_strings.h ==> WAS string in tools_sch.cpp

Tested with success on my computer. Ubuntu 17 Current Build. Since I can't commit anything to the repository, here are the modifications:

help_common_strings.h: ADDED

// Schematic editor:
#define HELP_SELECT _( "Select item" )
#define HELP_HIGHLIGHT _( "Highlight net" )

tools_sch.cpp : MODIFIED
// Set up toolbar
m_drawToolBar->AddTool( ID_NO_TOOL_SELECTED, wxEmptyString, KiScaledBitmap( cursor_xpm, this ),
                            HELP_SELECT, wxITEM_CHECK );

m_drawToolBar->AddTool( ID_HIGHLIGHT, wxEmptyString,
                            KiScaledBitmap( net_highlight_schematic_xpm, this ),
                            HELP_HIGHLIGHT, wxITEM_CHECK );

We have already reached the string freeze stage of v5 release, so we try to avoid introducing new texts to give the translation team to work on their part. Thank you for the patch, we will commit it in v6.

I guess we could add this to 5.0.1?

milestone: 6.0.0-rc1 → 5.0.1

But thinking twice, this is not really that critical and should probably just be merged on master only.

Changed in kicad:
milestone: 5.0.1 → 5.1.0

@Vincent, it looks like this only adds the hint for eeschema, but not for pcbnew.
