Option to switch off tool tip (auto pop up information) in AM Dash

The automatic pop up of the tool tip window(s) in the AM views is extremely annoying, especially if operators work from home
with smaller displays i.e. on notebook computers.
It always overlays just the expan button as wel as menus they want to select from, and it can be a tricky game to pass them by.
Unfortunatel ther is no option yet to deactivate the tool tip.
So it is compromising the product acceptance of those who work with it in the daily operating business.
We urgently need an option to switch it of, also ok if it disappears at all.
