Turning off callout tips in qtconsole #694
I'm using ipython 0.11 with Python 2.7.2 from EPD 7.12 on MacOS 10.6.8.
qtconsole crashes frequently, usually when a callout tip appears. If there was on option to disable to callout tips, perhaps qtconsole wouldn't crash as frequently. Alternatively, qtconsole not crashing when callout tips appear would be great.
I'm pretty sure the crashes are caused by instabilities in PySide, because with PyQt I've never had a crash in over one year of intensive use. Unfortunately pyside is very new and it seems it's not really ready for prime time quite yet. It would be good if you can report this also as an EPD bug, they might be able to find the root cause of the problem and work with the pyside project to fix it.
Having said that, it would indeed be useful to have the calltips be configurable, so I'm keeping this open. Thanks for your report!
