this has always been an irritation, but i guess i’ve finally got fed up enough to ask the question:
how do i stop the system(*) from automatically scrolling the Surfaces and Parameters windows down, when you move the mouse to the (completely unwanted, but apparently undeselectable) “Tips” window?
it happens whenever there’s more than a screenful of information in Parameters or Surfaces, and it happens in both my own tailored workspace and also if i try and use one of the provided ones too. it also happens if i move the mouse OFF the Tips window into the Parameters or Surfaces area
now, i’m pretty sure that there must be a way of stopping it, because i’ve got one “Parameters” window which doesn’t exhibit this behaviour, but after much experimention and hair-pulling i’ve still got no idea what’s different about that particular one to any of the other flavours i have scattered around on various tabs
(*) i’m still running DS4, because a) i was one of the suckers who actually spent good money on it, so i’m going to get as much use from the thing as possible. and b) i can’t see any particular benefit in going over to 4.5, and especially as i’ll have to wait for plug-ins to be updated… my guess is that 4.5 will still exhibit this behaviour in any case
