Disable popups on Kibana visualizations

Is there some way to disable the popups on visualizations? I have to be really careful with where I place my mouse pointer to avoid these panels showing up everywhere. They obstruct the view for all visualizations they cover, and the constant changes following the pointer exactly in the focus view are truly irritating.

Hi @andrask, I am afraid at the moment it's not possible. I see that we don't have it on our roadmap yet, so you can submit a feature request.

Thank you @Marta_Bondyra . I'll try to open a feature request.

In the meantime here is a simple Tampermonkey script to hide those tooltips. It's not great but works and helps me keep my sanity. :slight_smile:

// ==UserScript==
// @name         Hide the Elastic tooltips
// @namespace    http://<kibana server>/app
// @version      0.1
// @description  Hide tooltips in kibana
// @author       You
// @match        http://<kibana server>/app/*
// @grant        none
// ==/UserScript==

(function hideThosePeskies() {
    var v = document.getElementsByClassName('echTooltipPortal__invisible')
    if (v.length) {
        v.forEach( i => {i.style.visibility='hidden';} )
    setTimeout(hideThosePeskies, 5000)

I opened the FR: Disable tooltips in Kibana · Issue #98134 · elastic/kibana · GitHub
