I have been used TeXstudio since a few days ago.

When I wrote some math commands, the explanation sometimes appeared.

It blinds my writing, and I feel really uncomfortable.

If possible, please let me know the way to remove the explanation part.


Thank you for your comments. As someone said, I unchecked Show help as tooltip on text in editor.


However, I continually got the pop-up as follows.


If you can solve my problem, please let me know the way.

  • @MajidAbdolshah Thank you for your suggestion. However, I want to make TeXstudio not to pop up the explanation such as "16.2. Math symbols, ..." in my figure. Can you help me? – Doyun Nam Apr 9 '19 at 6:25

    You probably want Options -> Configure TeXstudio (check Show advanced options) -> Adv. Editor -> uncheck Show help as tooltip on text in editor. – gusbrs Apr 9 '19 at 12:20
  • They seem to be TeXdoc previews and one or two settings may be related unfortunately my TeXstudio is running on a MiKTeX that's not feeling well at present and wont show TeXdoc outputs so cant test that hypothesis for a while. – user170109 Apr 10 '19 at 2:48

Help as Tooltips is controlled via Configure > Advanced Options > Advanced Editor

also in Completion settings (Kudos to Red-Cloud for this pointer and linked image)

  • Unchecking these boxes did not eliminate the tooltips for me on the new TeXstudio. The \frac tooltip appears every time I start to type \frac. – Sander Heinsalu Sep 24 '19 at 1:53
