Turn off Intellisense Syntax Help in Qlik Sense


I need someone to help me keep my sanity!

I work all day, every day in Qlik Sense as my company is a Qlik Sense partner. Generally we love the product, however the intellisense syntax help popup is phenomenally annoying. I can appreciate if you are new to Qlik Sense that this may be useful when writing a new function. However, the majority of functions I use, I use constantly, so have no need for syntax help. If I need a new funtion then the Community or the excellent 1.1 Script and Function guide are what I use.

I spend most of my day with the annoying yellow popup covering my lines of code:


Is there any way to turn this off? We have some people in our group who are capable of editing the Qlik Sense source code if we can be directed to the right location.

My sanity is a precious commodity......

In the best case, I press escape before something I don't want happens

In the worst case, I have to retype the whole thing because of the "uberhelpful autocompletion"

An option turn it off or dial it down would be nice. Some suggestions might actually be helpful, like TableName or FieldNames. Maybe a compromise would be to not have it appear on its own, but rather appear on a keyboard shortcut
