The information box when hovering over a document is undoubtly very useful but gets into the way when the contextual menu is invoked. I would rather prefer that the information box vanishes immediately when the contextual menu appears.
I don’t doubt the image, but how are you invoking the contextual menu? I’m not able to reproduce, so I must be clicking something wrong. Over here, the tooltip info vanishes as soon as I control-click or right-click the document name.
Interesting. In my case, the tooltip info stays, no matter if I control-click or right-click. It also does not depend on the view (three-pane, list etc.) and even happens in the “See also”-window. At the moment, I am working on my Macbook Pro, but if I remember correctly, I encounter the same behaviour on both iMacs at home and at work.
I have installed the most recent versions of DTPO and Mac OS, so it perhaps has something to do with the German localization (which, however, would be funny considering the fact that a substantial part of the DT-staff is German-speaking)?
After being back from holiday, I have now tried again at my imac at home, and here it is the same issue, easily reproduced. I could provide more screenshots, if this would be of any help to track down the cause.
I had this problem over several versions of DTPO. Drove me nuts. I followed the instructions in this article http://www.macworld.com/article/1055202/termtooltips.html to set the delay for tooltips’ appearance in DTPO to 30 seconds. I don’t find DTPO’s tooltips all that useful, so this works for me.
