Method signature display

When you do an Alt-Q, you see the method signature in a tool-tip.

When you do Alt-Up and Alt-Down, you move from method to method.

Is there some way to keep the method signature 'always visible' when moving
from method to method so you don't have to keep hitting Alt-Q.

Thanks,

Ted Hill

Maybe I'm missing something, but when I do Alt-Up and Alt-Down, my
cursor is positioned on the method name with the method name scrolled to
the middle of the screen.

Why would you need to do an Alt-Q to see the same information that is
under the cursor?

Yes of course, what was I thinking.

Actually what I want is for the Alt-Q tool tip with the method signature to
stay active as I move through my file with F3 find-next.

This way I can highlight all usages with CTRLSHIFTF7, then keep hitting F3
to go to the next occurrence and still know what method I'm in.

That's a feature request I would vote for :)
