Tooltip doc window disappears for no reason

Answered

I changed the setting to make my tooltip show on mouse hover.  That part works fine.

But my tooltip window shows up for a while, then just disappears, and this happens with I take my hands off the mouse and keyboard and remain mouse-hovered on a ~method.

I tried updating to the latest version (below) and it seemed to fix it for a day, but now again it's back.  Of course, it's no fun to have the words disappear as you're reading them.

 

Any thoughts/fix?

Are you referring to the quick documentation window? Is that the same problem as described at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/60959630/how-to-increase-timeout-of-hover-doc-in-intellij ?

I have also seen this problem for a while.

I started to search for the solution and when searching, I realized that the time the tooltips remains in PyCharm (around a second) behaves in the exact same way in Firefox!

I am running Linux mint and changed to Windows 10 that I seldom use. I installed PyCharm and the problem went away!

I have seen that many have the problem in Windows 10. Maybe try if the problem is the same in Firefox when hovering over a link for example?

I will search the problem in Linux.
