I filed this in the bug forum initially, because I still think it's a serious bug in how the journal is designed. I was asked to post it here instead, however. So here it is. The crafting journal lacks any information at all about what a given potion does. I.e., if I open my journal, and move the mouse cursor over the potion icon for a given potion recipe, nothing is shown. So unless you've memorized what every potion does, or can find it on a crafting website (and not all are listed), you've no idea what a potion you've *learned* actually does until you craft one. Please fix the journal to contain such information. It would probably be useful for other items as well, such as bowstrings etc so you can know what the bonuses are w/o having to craft one etc.
