Other Improvements

New Tooltip Show Event Option (ATL+MouseMove)

The tooltip message displayed with a delay of 1 second is sometimes quite annoying, and its inappropriate pop-up can sometimes cause unnecessary interference to the input. In 8.1 we added a new tooltip showevent option, you can use Alt+mousemove (hold alt key) to trigger the display of tooltip instead of the original mousemove event. When you press the alt key, the tooltip will be displayed immediately instead of being delayed for a second.

Use Menu -> Options -> Tooltip (Mouse Hover) to turn on this "ALT+MouseMove" option, default value is "Mouse Move".

Menu - Tooltip option
