Hello all,

I've got LO (OSX 10.7) installed and it works wonderfully. However, there is one annoying thing I would like to get rid of if possible. When scrolling through a document it shows in a popup which page you're on and under which heading/chapter it falls. Hence the width of the popup depends on the length of the heading. It disappears after about 4 seconds.

While this function can be handy at times, it can also be very annoying when reading large documents. You always have to remember constantly to keep your pointer somewhere below on the page otherwise the popup will block some sentence. This distracts from the actual task: reading.

Can this function be disabled?

Kind regards, Maarten
