Can you provide more details about what isn't working?
Comment 2 Marek Safar 2012-01-27 03:47:36 UTC
Sure, originally I though the pop up window does not every show but it works sometimes (very rarely to be correct). I don't know what's the trigger but most time nothing happens when I hover over any variable/parameter/field, etc.
Comment 3 Jeffrey Stedfast 2012-01-27 15:49:28 UTC
I suspect this might be a resolver issue. Can you attach a sample project?
Comment 4 Marek Safar 2012-02-03 06:31:45 UTC
There is no need for special project, just create default project from MD template.

Enclosing it just in case.

Comment 6 Jeffrey Stedfast 2012-02-08 14:18:19 UTC
What are you hovering over that doesn't work? 'a' seems to be the only thing worth hovering over and it works every time for me.

Is it a "1 out of 100 times it doesn't work" kind of thing?
Comment 7 Marek Safar 2012-02-08 14:24:04 UTC
It does not for me.

This is on Ubuntu, I'll try to test on Mac tomorrow
Comment 8 Marek Safar 2012-02-09 04:57:23 UTC
I have finally find out what it's.

It happens only on my multi monitor setup. When having MD window on my second monitor the hover tool tip shows at 0,0 on my first screen (left top most screen position) but I cannot move my mouse there because the tooltip disappears. I could possibly make a screen shoot if needed
Comment 9 Jeffrey Stedfast 2012-02-09 08:55:18 UTC
thanks, that is a huge discovery :-)

Probably all the fixes for multi-monitor on Mac broke multi-monitor on Linux or something.
Comment 10 Marek Safar 2012-02-09 10:05:36 UTC
I don't know it's linux problem only, I don't have my multi-monitor setup on other systems available
Comment 11 Jeffrey Stedfast 2012-02-09 10:52:30 UTC
I know this works on Mac because I fixed it a week or so ago :-)

Comment 13 Nikita Tsukanov 2012-02-21 10:29:19 UTC
Jeffrey, I have a single-monitor setup, so I think these bugs aren't duplicates. And I fixed my issue by commenting out
 if (y != oldY)
   	 223 	+        Move (x, y);
