Tooltips won't stay enabled


#1

Hi SQL Navigator team – Long time user of SQLNav and very impressed by the discussions on this forum and your willingness to address issues/new features brought up by users. So here’s my question/problem – no matter how often I enable them, I can’t get my tooltips to remain enabled in SQLNavigator. I’ll go in and check the “Show tooltips on toolbars” box in Customize to enable them, shutdown SQLNavigator, and when I come back in they’re disabled. Even when they are enabled, I can’t seem to get them to come up. Tooltips work fine in Windows and other applciaitons just not SQLNav.

I’ve checked the registry and everything looks right. ShowHint has a 1 in each key. I’m totally stumped as to why it wouldn’t be retained. I tried runnign as administrator just to rule that out being a Windows7 issue. But, it didn’t work in 6.3 on XP either. Yet, everything else I change in the customize dialog seems to work and be retained.

Is there someplace else I should be going to enable these?

Windows7 SP1
SQLNav 6.4.0.1930

Hi Mark,

Could you please check in your SQL Navigator preference window under menu View->Preferences. Please turn on the Hints option as attached screen shot, I believe that it would retain the show hint for you.

Thanks andr regards,
Bruce

Thanks Bruce. After all this time, it was that simple. I wasn’t expecting that setting to be controlled in two spots.

Looks like that did the trick perfectly. Thanks again.
