Some users may not like calltips. As the google thread
above suggests, it must be possible to turn calltips off
from the configuratio dialog.

    No current plans to add extensions to the config
    system. It's simple enough to modify
    config-extensions.cfg (or .def) to turn off an
    extension.

    I suspect if you use IDLE for awhile ignoring an
    unwanted calltip will become second nature.

    I support the original poster. I also often find that
    calltips are getting in the way (and they don't always go
    away when you click on them; there may be a bug lurking
    somewhere). Previously, IDLE had an option to disable
    calltips and then you could enable another cool extension,
    parentheses balancing. Is the code for that still around?

    Yes, there are a couple of open bugs on calltips not
    disappearing, e.g. when hitting esc. These will be fixed,
    and in 2.4 calltips will support class attributes.

    Yes, the original mechanism for enabling extensions
    is still available, that's what I was referring to. Just
    set

    [CallTips]
    enable=0

    and

    [ParenMatch]
    enable=1

    in config-extensions.def or
    ~/.idlerc/config-extensions.cfg

    The question is whether to go to the effort of adding
    a config GUI enhancement to support extensions, and
    if so, at what priority relative to other things.

    Patches are always welcome :-)
