Feature Req: hover informational popups

Eclipse has an excellent "info popup on hover" feature. Hover over a member var and a window appears showing its defintion, along with preceding comment, if any. Likewise for a function etc. You can even click on the popup so you can navigate the related body of code.

Would be sweet to have it in Clion too.

Hi.

CLion has Quick definition feature.
Please give it a try: ⌥Space on OS X and Ctrl+Shift+I for Windows and Linux.

Even with that feature, hovers would be very helpful.

We spend 90% of time looking at code - so anything that lets you to use mouse to obtain info you're after, w/o having to resort to keyboard, would be a good thing :)


On that note, as a vey special gift to jetbrainers - take a look @ G600 mouse from Logitech. It has over 30 keystokes you can program, just an absolute joy to use to move around the code.
