Is there a way to programatically turn off Map Tips (the ones on the Display tab) with Python? Thanks.

I don't think it's possible using ArcPy directly. If you really needed it, you could call a DLL from a script tool which included the relevant ArcObjects code, but that's non-trivial to set up if you just wanted something simple.

cheers,
Shaun

Ok, thanks Shaun. It's just to prevent user error since displaying map tips apparently interferes with the hyperlink tool. If the user remembers to keep them turned off, that'll work.
