General: Unavailable Commands: debug-hide-value-tips

I'm using Wing Pro 10.0.1.3. In debug mode, when I hit Shift + Space, the tooltip cannot be activated, as shown below:

Any tips for solving this problem?

Thanks for sending in the bug report. The answer is that you need to disable the obscure and apparently broken Debugger > Advanced > Animate Debug Data Tooltips preference and then it should work. Please let us know if not.

I see that also sometimes but the debug value tool tips are still showing up and hiding as they should. If you are not seeing the tool tips appear, could you please let us know?

We'll look into why this is showing the error message, apparently due to processing the key release event twice. Thanks for reporting this.

I don't see the tooltip coming up at all.

Try doing Edit > Command by Name and then type describe-key-briefly, press Enter, and then press and release Shift-Space and then press Enter. Is this bound to a set of commands that starts with debug-show-value-tips? If not, that is the problem and the key may be redefined in a custom key binding.

If that is OK then I'm not sure what to try but it may make sense to just bind this functionality to another key using the User Interface > Keyboard > Custom Key Bindings preference. For example, you could bind Shift-F7 to the following commands:

debug-show-value-tips, debug-hide-value-tips

Then pressing Shift-F7 once will show the tips and pressing that again will hide it. The default binding of Shift-Space is designed to hide them again when you release the keys; if something is going wrong with that for some reason, then the above approach should still work.

  1. "Try doing Edit > Command by Name and then type describe-key-briefly, press Enter, and then press and release Shift-Space and then press Enter. Is this bound to a set of commands that starts with debug-show-value-tips?"

It shows the following: Line 51 Col 10 - [User] Shift-Space is bound to debug-show-value-tips(release toggle=True); send-keys(keys=" ")

I tried this, but it still doesn't take effect.

Could you please try running to a breakpoint, trying Shift-Space, and then right after it fails send in a bug report from Wing's Help menu? Please include the error log, which I hope will provide us with some clues as to what is going wrong. Thanks!

I've sent the bug report according to your above guidance.
