TexStudio is my favourite Tex editor. However, one feature is very annoying that I couldn't figure out how to disable. When the mouse pointer stays for a while on some Tex command, an auto-help window appears on the screen which includes information about the command. I tried to disable it from options, configure TeXstudio, but it seems that there is no option there.

Yes, there is. You have to check the Advanced Options. See the image.

Then, the Special Options contains the Help tooltips.

    Thanks! I didn't notice the "Show Advanced Options".

  • As of now, the option 'Show preview as tooltip on formulas in editor' is absent and it is not clear how to disable the preview.

    In version 2.2.16 this option has moved to the "Preview" section in options.
