Your question is for me not comprehensible. Please describe in more details what you did before hovering with the mouse over something.

hello, thank you for responding. i have already written text that has been formatted i suppose a couple of times already. i have switched back and forth between showing and recording changes. when the cursor (not clicked) is seen above a part of the text that is somehow considered "formatted" or has had changes recorded, a small box pops up saying something like "formatted: 00//00/00 00:00" or "deleted" and again the date. this doesn't turn off when i turn of record/show changes. thankyou!

Hi - You can remove the tips with Tools Options LibreOffice General, changes are still there... Otherwise, use Edit Changes Accept or Reject

I have this problem too and it is very annoying. I have done lots of changes, which I have recorded, but do not want to see them at this point.

I can find nothing in Tools > Opitions > LibreOffice > General which addresses this problem.
