I was waiting for a program to upload and I noticed a flashing on my screen. I eventually found it happened when the the mouse pointer was over a variable.
The "window" was only there for a fraction of a second. I was able to capture it with a screen recorder. I outlined it in orange because of the poor resolution.
I'm guessing it should be there long enough for at least Evelyn Woods to read it.

@JohnRob you can submit a bug report to the Arduino IDE 2.x issue tracker to bring it to the attention of the IDE's developers:

topic: language server
**Describe the bug**
In the IDE editor, moving the mouse over a variable or fun
… ction I see a flash on the screen. It appears on different places depending on ..... I guess the window size and configuration. Not 100% sure where it will be on the screen.
It appears to be a help popup for whatever the mouse is hovering over. It is so fast one cannot even perceive the contents. But through the amazing :) technology of video screen capture I was able to grab an image. See below highlighted in orange.
In the editor simply move the mouse over a variable and watch the screen closely.
Either no "flash" OR the popup there long enough to read it OR the popup there while you hold the mouse in that spot.
**Desktop (please complete the following information):**
- OS: [Windows10 / 64]
BTW it happened on beta 9 and beta10. I realized both 9 and 10 were installed at the same time. So I uninstalled both and deleted all traces of things Arduino (files, appdata, registry).
Then installed the above mentioned nightly.
Add any other context about the problem here.
Thanks so much for your report!
