Hi. I was wondering if we could do something about the info popup. This is the tooltip window that appears when the cursor is over an image in the filmstrip for more than a second or two.
I hate it. I absolutely hate it.
It appears unexpectedly, and I’ve been conditioned to move the cursor when it appears, but all too often, the cursor merely ends up hovered over another image in the filmstrip, and another popup appears. There is very little space in the window that is safe from triggering the popup.
The popup window is too large, too distracting, takes up too much real estate, and gets in the way. It is a constant interruption. It definitely has useful information, but having it always armed and ready to appear is bad UX design.
I suggest a preferences toggle to display/suppress the popup, and a command-I to summon image info on demand.
I hate this incessant behavior so much I am willing to fund its removal.
Please … I am begging you.
