6708 - Ctrl+F1 compilation error tooltip disappears waay too fast

Hello,

If I have a compilation error in Java which is highlighted in red and I press Ctrl+F1 - the tooltip appears but it closes after about a second (without me touching anything, even trying not to breathe) so it's hard to actually read it .. :)

My env: WinXP SP2, Selena build 6708

Thank you !

Hello Evgeny,

Thank you, it's another regression.
I've created an issue http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEADEV-14734.

There is no need to hold your breath actually: as a workaround you can read
the message either
- in the tooltip after hovering the mouse over the error, or
- in the status bar after pointing the caret to the error.

But then you need to use the mouse...

- in the status bar after pointing the caret to the error.


...and in the status bar you don't get the nice layout with one line per
error, or line breaks or color highlights within messages, as in:

fooMethod(String, int) in MyClass cannot be applied
to (int, int)
