Hovering symbols pressing CTRL slows down QtCreator immensely
When I hover symbols with my mouse, holding down the CTRL key, QtCreator slows down immensely, making the usage of the IDE almost impossible.
This slowdown doesn't only happen when I'm trying to press CTRL+Left Click to "follow" a symbol, but also when I'm trying to copy/paste text.
Is there any way to fix this slowdown or disable the hover CTRL functionality?
Is this a bug that should be reported? How can I determine what's causing this issue?
Bump. Problem still occurs with 3.3.2
Hi and welcome to devnet,
You should take a look at the bug report system to see if it something known. If not please consider opening a new report providing as much details as you can, including OS and compiler.
It's reported here https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTCREATORBUG-12573
Not fixed yet.
However, there's some quick fix proposed there. Have not tried it though.
would you guys by any chance be referring to this?
annoyed me pretty bad as well so i finally decided to google a solution ..
for QtCreator 3.4.1 it's menu bar tools > options > text editor > behavior > uncheck "enable mouse navigation"
the instructions in the link are slightly different, but nevertheless was my original source of the solution.
