Enable tooltips

 

If this box is checked, when the mouse is over a sequence grid, a tool-tip displaying information about the cell being pointed to can be displayed.

 

Seconds before opening

 

If tool-tips are enabled, this text box controls how many seconds it will take before the tool-tip pops up, when the mouse is kept still over a sequence grid.  

 

You do not have to specify a whole number; for example, you can set it to six tenths of a second by entering "0.6".

 

Seconds before closing automatically

 

If tool-tips are enabled, this checkbox and text box control whether or not they will automatically close themselves a certain amount of time after being opened.  If the checkbox is checked, they will automatically close after the number of seconds specified in the text box.

 

You do not have to specify a whole number; for example, you can set it to three-quarters of a second by entering "0.75".
