How to turn off the pop up explanations in the register.

I'd like to turn off these pop up tips that show when you hover over an icon. For example Save over the save icon or Split over the split icon. I haven't seen how to do this in Preferences.

    I don't believe you can turn them off @Wes Brockway just try to avoid them. Even with the tips displayed it should not interfere with the button, just click on a different part of the button

    I do try to avoid them but the pop up tip covers so much of the icon it is difficult to get the hand where I can click to activate it. This is a very annoying "feature" to me. Certainly I can and have worked around it but it would be nice to be able to turn them off.

    I agree with @Wes Brockway. There should be an option to turn off these annoying tool tips. They can be worked around as @YingDave noted, but typically cover most of the icon and then you need to move to the uncovered portion, if you can see it at all, to activate the tool.

    I disagree. These popups were introduced because the Developers wanted to give the User the explanation of the Icons that were replaced, word Icons, like Save and Attached. If the word, popped up, the icon is clickable.., even with my bad eyesight.
