I just found out this today, when I move my mouse cursor to a English word in a English bible with interlinear info, I got a tooltip at the bottom of the screen, just above windows task bar

For example if I move your mouse cursor to Gen 2:17 it will give me the follow tooltip

יהוה, noun, proper, divine, singular, masculine, normal; Strong's Hevrew #3068

This is very useful when I do my Bible study, but can I disable it, as if I doing my daily Bible reading, I don't wnat to see those thing pop-up everytime I move my mosue,.

Thanks for your help

God bless

I don't think you can disable the tooltip unless you toggle the Reverse Interlinear view. If you use paged view for Bible reading you can advance the text with the space bar of page down button and keep the mouse cursor out of the way so the tooltip won't show.

Thanks , that is a shame that we cannot disable it unless we are in interlinear view, as sometime I want to highlight some text so I still need to use the mouse.

While we on the subject of tooltip, does anyone know what information been given in the tool tips?

As I found out that sometime it will have common, common in the tooltip, those two must be refer to two different thing, can someone you able to tell me what are those inforation regard to the orginal text for both Geek and Hebrew?

Thanks and God bless

The tooltip reveals mostly Morphological information.

If you've seen common twice then you're probably in a Hebrew morphology. It can refer to the gender of a noun or suffix, There are also common nouns which are nouns that aren't proper or denote the place where someone/thing comes from  (Gentilic nouns)

This page might be helpful to figure out Morphology

also, be certain to use Heiser's Glossary of Morpho-Syntactic Database Terminology
