1) Go to Clause Search.

2) Switch from Greek to Hebrew, or the other way around.

3) A resource info popup appears, and won't go away again.

Workaround: open and close the dropdown a second time, without changing anything.

(Why do we need these popups at all? There's only two resources to choose between.)

Noticed same behavior for Syntax Search.

I can't reproduce this on Windows.

As Graham hinted, this is a persistent Mac display issue with many (most) popups. Usually, just click the Menu bar and the popup will go away. Perhaps, development will fix this mess soon.

I know popup bugs are likely to be Mac specific. I also know they've asked us to report when we find reproducible cases.

I didn't know the menu bar trick, though. I'll try that next time.

Just reread your original post. Seems I had a different type of lingering popup in mind with my initial response. Did not notice that you were speaking of "resource" popup. When following your steps, received the persistent resource popup as you did, but it usually went away with movement of the mouse. Sometimes, it required a click as well as movement. Was not previously aware of this type of lingering popup; will need to watch more carefully in the future.

Jack Caviness:

Strangely, it does for me too today. When I posted, the only ways I could find to get rid of it was to either reopen the dropdown, or go back and forth to another Space.

My experience today as well.

Same here.

This is fixed in 5.0b RC 2. There were various persistent popups fixed in RC 1 and RC 2, so it is possible that this was fixed in 5.0b RC 1. This will be fixed in general when 5.0b ships to the stable channel. 

The persistent popup in Syntax search is also fixed in 5.0b RC 2.

I am happy to report that these particular popups now seem to disappear faster than just about any popups in Logos.Big Smile
