Vivado - How can I change the behavior of the tooltips


When I hover my mouse over certain objects or instance names in the Vivado IDE, a pop-up window (Tooltip) opens. 

  • How can I change the behavior of the tool tips?
  • Can I make the tooltips stay on screen for longer?
  • Can I prevent the tooltips from appearing?
  • Can I change the time required to hover over an object before the tool tip appears?


The tooltip options are found under Tools - 1 of 3.> Options -> General -> Tooltips and help.

You can adjust the delay value and the duration.

The language of the message can also be changed.
