David,

Now attached:

Could you please copy and paste your actual Info Text text into your reply?  That way I won't have to type it in myself and things will go a lot faster and be less error-prone.

Thanks,

-Kirk

I like the idea of having more than three lines of text.  I think the max should be somewhere between 5 and 10.

The Show Info Tooltips option is okay, but I find it *very* distracting that this window jumps around on the screen.  I'd suggest converting it to a pane like the Navigator, Toolbar, and Favorites.

David,

Code: [Select]
Sorry Kirk.

Now added:

FILE NAME: {filenamebase}

OK, we're unable to reproduce the problem with your Info Text.  Please post a sample image.  It may be an issue with your actual metadata, one that we don't have in our own images.

Thanks,

-Kirk

Thanks Kirk.

A smaller D4 NEF image is attached. I have again tried it on the Drobo and a main PC drive and it is as before. As soon as I turn info tool tips on, the message comes up and I cannot turn it off. It applies to any image type.

By now moving the message to just below the View button I can turn off the message and still have time to untick the tool tips drop down menu.

Thanks for your efforts.
David
