When I have IPython qtconsole fullscreen on my right monitor, and I type a short command, the tooltip ends up across two monitors, which makes it hard to read:
If possible, IPython ought to detect the monitor edge and consider this in the placement of the tooltip box.
Unfortunately I would say that this is a Qt/PyQt issue, and I doubt there is anything we can do from our side.
We'll still try.
Hmm, I see how that could be very frustrating. Anyway, I've read through the Qt documentation for QToolTip and it doesn't appear that there is any mechanism for having the tooltip stay within one monitor.
The only alternative would be to use a different mechanism to display the help text --- perhaps in a frame within the window?
