After Webstorm 6 upgrade, inspection hints do not display

I have native inspection and JSHint enabled.  Both show the code highlighters and the right-hand indicators in yellow and red as always. Clicking a right-hand indicator navigates to the location as expected.

However, since I upgraded to Webstorm 6 (uninstall/reinstall, import settings), I no longer get the popup/tooltips when I hover over any indicator. The cursor does not change to the hand cursor.

It must be a setting, but I have combed through the settings several times now and searched google and this forum, without getting any suggestions.

Thanks in advanced for any assistance! (Windows 7, if it matters)

Hello!

can you try invalidating caches (File | Invalidate Caches)? Also, please, can you attach your settings?

Best regards,
Lena

Thanks for the response, Elena.

I invalidated my caches and restarted, but the behavior did not change, still no text descriptions on hover over any of the indicators.

I have attached an export of all my settings.  Thanks again for your help!

works fine for me using your settings... Please, try the following:
- shut down WebStorm
- delete ~\.WebStorm6\config and ~\.WebStorm6\system folders
- start WebStorm, import your settings

does the problem persist?

Best regards,
Lena

also, a screenshot that shows up your problem might be helpful...

I deleted those folders and imporrted my settings with no change in behavior.

I also checked before importing settings, but no joy.

It would be difficult to show the issue in a screenshot, since the problem is an absence of a behavior. I notice that I have absolutely no popup tooltips of any kind.

I think I will try a clean uninstall / reinstall next.

Thanks for your attention!

I did a full uninstall, manual delete, reboot, re-install WS 6.0.1, using all defaults, chose no settings import, and I still experience the same issue.  To restate that issue, I have no hand cursors or popup tooltips anywhere in the entire IDE, including tool icons on the toolbar, but most critically, no inspection hints from the problem indicators.

I re-installed webstorm 5.0.4, and verified that I have that functionality in that version.  I attached a screenshot showing the correct behavor in WS 5. The popup text in that screenshot does not happen in my Webstorm 6 install.

I am pretty clear it is not settings after this process.  Oh, I did try setting the tooltip dipslay time to zero, with no change.

I am back in operation under 5.0.4, but there are several features in 6.x that I would really enjoy, so any additonal help in solving this problem will be welcome.
