Visual Aid Tool Tips not displaying in Dreamweaver

Whenever I selected a div in dreamweaver a tooltip type box would normally appear showing width, height, etc properties. Now whenever I do this the tooltip box flashes up and disapears so quickly I can't see it.

Any help greatly appreciated!

I'm using Vista Home Premium. I suspect there's a bigger issue and this is just a side effect. The side panels also flicker whenever I do anything. Might be time for a reinstall...

Hi kirkheaton25,

I've been looking in the Adobe KB for this issue and have not been able to find anything.  What operating system are you using?
Jason C. LevineNo oneCommented:
Yes, it does sound like a symptom of a larger issue.  Are you sure your video drivers are Vista-approved?

I would look to that first.  If the drivers are good/up to date, then try an uninstall/reinstall (make sure to export definitions first) of DW.

I'm objecting to the deletion only because you never responded to my last post.  It's fine if the answer didn't work and you want to close this, just let me know that is the case.

Sorry I thought this thread had reached its natural conclusion. Apologies, if I've caused any upset.
The video drivers are Vista approved I'm currently testng my backups on another system before I reinstall.
Thanks again.

I'm not upset, I just wanted to know what the status was...I learn from doing this as much as you do.

>> I thought this thread had reached its natural conclusion.

But the conclusion is not necessarily deletion...

Either the reinstall works, in which case you should accept your post or mine as the answer, or it doesn't.  If it doesn't work, then just say so and we can keep trying or you can delete.  But when you try to close it without any update or comment, you will find that a lot of Experts will object.
