syntax warning popups in the way; need options

One of the reasons I use PyCharm is for the validation but when I paste a code snippet or break a set of braces while reformatting white-space the syntax errors are usually right between me and where I need to click next. Thus adding an additional action (sometimes 2 or 3 because it pops up on every keypress) every time I need to click near the area I'm editing in which usually happens when cleaning up other people's code. There need to be other display options for the warning bubbles. I'm not sure the best way to do these but at least adding a setting to delay it's popup instead of on every key press or make it avoid the cursor.

Hello tanner,

You can turn off the auto import popups in Settings | Editor | Auto Import.

We're still thinking about ways to make the auto-import popups behave better

in real-life situations.
