I think finding a gesture to use, while the tool tip is showing, is  
difficult because tool tips are very elusive and do not respond to  
regular events (and if they did, they would often interfere).

Perhaps an easier approach is to just have alternative commands.

We already have ⌃⇧P → Show Scope (as tool tip) and ⌃⇧⌘P →  
Copy Scope (to clipboard).

One could do similar for the statistics command.
