Disable function tips, suggestions, help pop-up in Editor R2021b macOS
28 views (last 30 days)
I would like to turn off the function suggestions that pop up while typing in the editor. This used to be accomplished in Preferences>Keyboard> and deselecting Function Hints, but that is no longer there. Did not seem like a logical place for that preference, I will admit, but I cannot find it anywhere now.

In MATLAB R2021b, the option to disable function syntax hints in the MATLAB editor is no longer supported.
However, you can disable function syntax hints in the MATLAB Command Window. You can also choose Code Suggestions and Completions to only appear after the you press the tab key (which are similar to, but not the same thing as function syntax hints).
Refer this link to know more on how to disable Automatic Suggestions and Completions.

@Dirk, would you mind trying this:
- Go to Preferences
- In the menu on the left, click into MATLAB > Editor/Debugger > Automatic Completions
- Under Suggestions and completions, check Show on tab
- Click OK
This will stop the function suggestions from popping out automatically while typing, unless you explicitly hit <tab> key.
