Tooltips are blocking mouse clicks

Answered

Starting with IDEA 2016.2 tooltips are blocking mouse clicks on the top toolbar which is really annoying but everywhere else they work. On the top toolbar tooltips are center below the mouse and everywhere else they are offset away from the mouse. This is happening with all developers here and we're all using JDK 1.8.0 and my version is 1.8.0_92-b14.

Following the duplicates this bug goes back to 2014 - are there any plans to fix this? It's really annoying not knowing if you have to click a button 1 time or 4 times or X times.

Here is the comparison from 2016.1 not blocking buttons and 2016.2 blocking buttons.

So are there any workarounds for this or is it going to be fixed anytime soon? This is a major productivity killer when you can't click buttons because the tooltips block them. Sure if you click 4-5 times it eventually clicks the button but then some buttons you end up clicking twice which you don't want.

I can suggest increasing tooltip delays via .vmoptions (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/articles/206544869):

-Dide.tooltip.initialDelay=10000
-Dide.tooltip.initialReshowDelay=10000
