I would like to disable the info fields that appear when I hover over the translation status symbol of the segments and the merged file separators. Is there a way to do that? I don't need this information and it always blocks my view when proofreading.

Absolutely! One of the most annoying quirks of Studio, and a real productivity killer!

Why annoying? Jul 14, 2016

This is useful information and most Studio users would not like to be without it.

It only shows up if you place your mouse pointer over the icon, which is not the case in normal work while you translate.

So, I can't understand why it disturbs you while translating.

Because my mouse often ends up over that section after I click and then start to type in a segment, and the box doesn't add any useful information for me at all. Also, the mouse doesn't have to be over just the icon; the info will appear if my mouse is anywhere inside the box.

I'm not suggesting removing it entirely since as you say it is useful for some people, but an option to disable it would remove one frequent annoyance I have while using Trados.
