I'm using Spacemacs on MS Windows (msys2 build) and when a tooltip pops up Emacs seems to move my mouse pointer out of the way. How can I prevent this automatic movement?
I do not use Spacemacs, but this could be caused by
mouse-avoidance-mode. It normally moves the mouse when the cursor is nearby. So it may also apply to tooltips, I am not sure.
You can check if it is enabled with C-h v mouse-avoidance-mode. If it is not
nil, you can disable it with
There are also several other options how the mouse is moved, see the manual. I used to set it to
'exile, which makes the cursor automatically return.
