# Disable blue spelling tooltip

I've noticed that at least on Mac, Mathematica automatically displays the blue spelling tooltip on misspelled words, but actually there's a much nicer, more reliable and faster tooltip when one uses the right click.

• @ihojnicki, @AlexeyPopkov This is weird indeed, I've made a gif to show you what is happening in my case (red blink indicates a right click). You might argue that this is a regular dictionary lookup, but this lag only occurs in MMA... Do you know how to investigate what is being run when I right click? Perhaps somehow inject the Trace command? Sep 13 '19 at 14:11
