Having just upgraded to Pro 2.4.3 and then adding the Spyder 4.0.0 package, I was overwhelmed with tool tip windows while writing code in Spyder. From this stack overflow post, here's how to suppress them if you too find them a little too helpful as I have....
You need to go to the menu
Tools > Preferences > Completion and linting > Introspection
and deactivate the option called
Enable hover hints.
A couple of other tricks
1. just give the mouse a quick 1 mm up stroke and the tool tip goes away
2. If you don't want to read in the tooltip, just click in the tooltip and it goes away, putting the help topic in the help area! No more querying and dir-ing and help-ing to find out about stuff.
3 Don't hover
Need more help and even code??
Some modules and functions are well documented and provide losts of information
import numpy numpy?? Type: module String form: <module 'numpy' from 'C:\\arc_pro\\bin\\Python\\envs\\arcgispro-py3\\lib\\site-packages\\numpy\\__init__.py'> File: c:\arc_pro\bin\python\envs\arcgispro-py3\lib\site-packages\numpy\__init__.py Source: """ NumPy ===== Provides 1. An array object of arbitrary homogeneous items 2. Fast mathematical operations over arrays 3. Linear Algebra, Fourier Transforms, Random Number Generation How to use the documentation ............. huge snip.///
Others less so
arcpy.da.FeatureClassToNumPyArray?? Call signature: arcpy.da.FeatureClassToNumPyArray(*args, **kwargs) Type: funcInfo String form: <da.funcInfo object at 0x000002670557C738> Docstring: FeatureClassToNumPyArray(in_table, field_names, where_clause=None, spatial_reference=None, explode_to_points=False, skip_nulls=False, null_value=None, sql_clause=(None, None)) -> numpy.array Load and return NumPyArray record object. # sadly.... not snip
