When I'm dragging a clip, a small yellow box appears next to the mouse to tell me the timecode of the clip I'm dragging. However, it's a dead zone for the mouse, meaning if I'm trying to drag the clip to the track below, for example, the move will cancel if I try to release the clip overtop the yellow box.
"Nickpicking," you might say, except it makes fine control over an edit incredibly difficult when you consider having to avoid a yellow box that pops up unpredictably, and let's be honest, it's the small things that can make an edit easy or tedious. In fact, if you're trying to squeeze a clip down to the track below it, your target area becomes that tiny slice of space between the top of the box and the top of the track layer.
This is CS5, not CS5.5, on a 2010 Mac Pro.
I was thinking that one could turn Tooltips OFF, but could not find it in PrPro. Guess that I was thinking of a couple of other Adobe programs, where one CAN turn them OFF.
Unless I just missed it, I'd say that is a good candidate for a Feature Request.
Maybe another person can tell us both how to turn them OFF in PrPro.
Ugh. I HATE the tool tips in PPro CS6! They seem to popup even faster than they did in CS5.5. Adobe, fix these annoyances! At least give us the option to disable.
I find them annoying, as well. An option to disable tooltips is a hot topic around the water cooler. I suggest you make a bug report: http://www.adobe.com/go/wish

Thanks in advance for the feature request. I'll make sure the powers that be see it.
