I'm using Mathematica 12.1.1.0 on Arch Linux with i3wm and whenever I hover over a cell or over the suggestion bar a small grey bar appears that is glitching through other cells (see image)gltiching grey bar torhough out8

enter image description here

Is it possible to deactivate this grey bar ? Or is there a better way to fix this issue? I tried searching in the inspector but I did not found the a way to turn it of. Additionally the blinkin cursor is while blinking not completly disappearing. So when the cursor shouldn't be visible I still see a small dot but I could live with that.

  • $\begingroup$ The gray bar is part of the suggestion format, and it seems unlikely that it can be eliminated. Also, please do not use the bugs tag until others verify that a bug actually exists. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Out of sheer curiosity, have you tried a different window manager? I wouldn't really expect different behaviour but you never know... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I don't have a different window manager installed at the moment but I will look into that. $\endgroup$ May 21, 2021 at 16:21
  • $\begingroup$ @CarlLange Ok, I tried a different window manager and I still have the same problem I even figured that if I add more cells the grey bar is getting bigger $\endgroup$ May 21, 2021 at 16:47
  • $\begingroup$ I presume you're using X11, not Wayland? And also, what graphics card and driver combo are you using? (I have no idea what's causing this - really my questions are to help you gather helpful information for a bug report to WRI.) $\endgroup$

I have the Windows version, probably it works the same as yours. In Windows version of MMA: open Edit/Preferences/Interface and uncheck: "Show Suggestion Bar after last output":
