I can't find a way to turn off hints/tooltips in XD. For example, I'm seeing them every time when I resize a group or a repeat grid, or when I open the Assets panel... I think I was able to turn them off before but with the latest update they came back. Anybody esle having this issue? Is it possible to turn them off? Thanks

Can you post a screenshot of what you are seeing for us to help you better? Also can you provide us with info on the OS that you are on, its version number, and the version number of XD that you are using currently?

Oh, how I hope this gets answered someday!

The links provided on Mar 30 have absolutely nothing to do with your request and the associated screen captures. 

 

It seems every update resets these things.

They cover up essential work area have to be manually dismissed over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over......and over again.
