When a user "completes" an already complete command, the tooltip help only shows for brief moments. Maybe it should show until the mouse is moved.

Steps to reproduce:

  • write a command with help available, such as "\small"
  • try to auto-complete the written command

The help tooltip will show for a brief moment.

I am running version 2.6.6 on Windows 7 64 bits.

    Essentially it should not show at all. But that's not possible due to a limitation in QToolTip and the current completer design.

    If you want to have the tooltip shown permanently (only alongside with the completer), you can disable Options -> Completion -> Autocomplete Common Prefix.
