draw.io how to suppress filename tooltip

Hi there,

in a Draw.io image I have defined some tooltips. In the Draw.io Macro Settings I switch off the toolbar. Then the image's tooltip (which is not shown if toolbar is "on") overwrites the shapes' tooltips. Can I prevent the image from showing its filename (and keep the checkbox Toolbar unchecked)?

Best regards

btw: Confluence Server, ver 6.0.4, draw.io for Confluence Server

Hi Bertram,

I see the same behaviour here in our Confluence, but I never really noticed this before smile

I found a dumb little workaround: put some blank lines before the text of the tooltip, so the name of the image overwrites these blank lines. Under the image name, there you should see your tooltip text.


Thank you, good idea, that helps till fixed.

Good spot, we'll get this fixed.

Nice, thanks.

I suggest to don't display the file name at all (not even in the header of the image if toolbar is on). At my opinion users of the page are not interested in internal information like file names, particularly not in their revision number. But if you edit the page the filename could be perhaps part of the marco header.
