How to get rid of orphaned tooltip windows?
« on: December 31, 2020, 03:42:25 pm »
If you change to another editor tab, while a tooltip is displayed, the tooltip window tends to remain on the screen.

How to get rid of these orphaned tooltips?

What tooltip? Code completion tooltip? Can you reliably reproduce this? What OS and C::B version?
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

Here is an example, which hangs within the Editor Settings dialog. If you close the dialog, it hangs in the editor window on the same screen position. OS: Linux Mint 19. I can't reproduce it reliably, sorry.

The only way I know to get rid of it, is restarting CB.

To make it disappear you need to find the editor/tab which spawned it and make it spawn another one.
I'll be happy to fix this if I can reliably reproduce it. But I don't know how.
It is quite annoying I agree. :(

OK, I'll watch it and if I find a method to reliable reproduce it, I'll tell you how.
