#1 Position suggestion tooltip near text cursor


When typing a sequence in UniChars, a tooltip appears near the mouse cursor listing all possible keys.
Since I often move my mouse cursor out of the way when using a text editor, the tooltip is not near the place I'm working.

Is it perhaps possible to make the tooltip appear near the text cursor?

    It has been already implemented in 0.9i which will be uploaded soon :-)
    See the News (Develop / News) for details when it will be released.

    See the comment I posted in Develop / News.
    Does it work in your Word processor ?

    Yesterday I thought of 2 extra tooltip options that might be useful:

    1) Disable tooltip.
    2) Set anchor to UniChars' system tray icon

    You have it (almost) already : set position to screen and X and Y to the width and height of your screen (or a little less).
    Anyway I found a library which should give me much more control on the tooltip and things will be changed in 1.1. But I don't want to change 1.0 again.
