How do I get these popups out of the way?

Hi,

I've just downloaded IDEA 13; barely used it so far.  The popups are driving me crazy.  I'm looking at some code and and typing and it pops up something that covers what I'm reading. I found a way to disable the "Autopopup code completion", but I still get things like this. I think they are called "intention actions" (?)

(By that way that's not a SQL file; I just happened to paste some SQL into Scala before editing it, and it's a good example because I'm trying to write code based on what is now hidden under the blue popup.)

Is there a way to tell it to show me suggestions only when I ask for them? I'm coming from Eclipse, and I do use the "quick fix" similar feature they have.  But I'd like it to indicate that a suggestion is available without getting in my face and covering the code I'm trying to write.  Maybe a squiggly underline or something like that.   Is that possible?

thanks,
Rob

Ditto, particularly mid-refactoring with lots of breakages I find IDEA13 really quite unpleasently distracting: http://devnet.jetbrains.com/message/5503466
Esp. compared to eariler versions of IDEA and I've been using on&off since 2.0.

Failed to find any setting to dial the distractions down, but can tell you the new notification settings on intentions don't appear to help.

Good to know I'm not the only one. I'll let you know if I find a fix.

Hit the Escape key to close the popup.
To switch it off uncheck Settings | Editor | Auto Import | Show import popup.

I at least don't not want to see any popups. It's that they light up all over the editor, not just where you are editing. Also escape doesn't stop the popup for very long, continue editing and popups you dismissed suddenly re-appear. It's both these that seem more in-your-face than IDEA 12.

Thank you, I will try that. I don't know how to test it this instant, but I'll post back if I have further questions.
