Hello,

I am trying to get into the swing of using Lightroom CC (which pales in comparison to the Lightroom Classic, IMO). I keep finding solutions to most of the problems I have had, however this particular one has me stuck.

Anytime I hover over a feature for a moment, an animated tool tip pops up. The pop-ups get in the way of my editing and are very annoying as they don't go away for all too long. This is really slowing down my productivity and of zero use to me since I already know how to use the features. I cannot find any way to make them go away when they pop-up, let alone disable them all together. Every search online only brings up the solutions for Photoshop, which the option does not appear in Lightroom CC.

Any help would be greatly appreciated otherwise I will have to abandon Lightroom CC as these are just all too distracting.

Thanks in advanced!

Take care,

-Justin

As far as I know, there is no option at this time to disable the tooltips. You can make a suggestion on the following website where the developers monitor much more closely.

Thanks, Jim! Although that's not the answer I was hoping for, I appreciate the insight and advice.

Cheers!

The frequency and the hover time to trigger with which the animated tool tips appear get better with time. It should get less intrusive as you use the app.

With all due respect, I've been using Lightroom, Photoshop and Premiere for 5 years now and it does not get any less annoying, we just develope a technique to keep the cursor moving and work faster than the pop-up. Honestly; it's a terrible feature. All we ask for is the option to disable it but Adobe is completely abscent on the matter 😄 Incredible.

Hello, 

it doesn't get better with time. This tool should be not intrusive at all instead of, hopefully less intrusive with time... Adobe makes great softawares, I am sure it wouldn't be too hard to give the option to disable a beginner tool...

This should not be marked as the correct answer. It is a useful answer but not "correct". As it is marked as correct it signals that the problem has been solved. It hasn't been solved. It is still unresolved I have wasted time with silly tool tips getting in my way. And now I have wasted time reading a post that purported to have solved my problem. And wasted even more time complaining about it  😂

With my ADHD, these tooltips are actually making it impossible for me to use Lightroom. I wanted to batch edit some photos but I guess I'm going to have to go back to photoshop…

I can't believe I pay for this. 😕

Otherwise use Lightroom Classic, no pop ups, but no cloud either.

It's May 2021 and there's still no option to turn these off?? For some reason Lightroom Classic stopped saving my edits, the photo's look exactly the same as before and nothing helps... So I decided to switch to Lightroom CC, but these hints... They are *beeping* terrible! I searched for the option to turn them off, but there's only the option to reset them, like why, no one wants these?? (Except amateurs I guess?)

 

Maybe it's a good solution to let people choose if they want them or not, with an option like; that you'll be able to select, how experienced you are with Adobe itself or the specific programs.

I also get these hints in Illustrator and guess what? You can't turn those off either, doesn't matter how long you've been using the program itself...

 

Missing the old days in which this option was still available...

 

(Also missing the "Turn off Syncing" option button by the way, instead of just being able to pause it...)
