I upgraded recently to V22.0.1.0 PRO
When I was using 12.0.0.3  I could do as following, which is not working anymore with V22.
- Hover mouse above symbol
- Got tool-tip with symbol information.
- Mark part of this info using mouse.
- Use Ctrl-C to copy this part of info to clipboard.
The only issue with V13 was that I had to be sure that mouse is still in tool-tip area before I did Ctrl-C.
With V22 clipboard is always empty. :-(

Correction:
When hovering above some function or symbol definitions, copying to the clipboard works.
There is a specific tool-tip family which is not working (and did work before)
which has horizontal line in the middle (example below)
This is the line from header file which is tagged
#define iocfg_adr  0x003000568   //cfg_adr_base + 0x000000568

and this is how "non-copy-able" tool-tip window looks like

#define iocfg_adr 0x003000568

Reproduced. As a work around, use Alt+Dot to bring up the symbol information. That worked for me.

Yes, it works. Thank you.
However, it is additional click.
I hope that your team will fix that as a part of next hot-fix.

By the way, when I do Alt+. on a function name, I'm getting similar list as for #def,
but once I move mouse out of function name (trying to reach tool-tip for copying), both pop-ups disappear.
Because of that, I cannot also resize the function list window. :(
Attached screen shot so it is clear to which poop-ups I'm referring to.
It looks like you should review tool-tips for V22.

If you choose a very large font for parameter info and display a function with a long signature, there is a clipping issue.

I do not have very large font, it happens on all functions for me (long and short names).
I found how I can work around it (maybe this will give you a clue.)
Once I click Alt +.  and use scroll on mouse so the function with cursor on it scroll away from tool-tips  or behind the tool-tip (originally first pop up is directly below function name, touching it), then I can move my mouse away from function name and move it over pop-ups. In this situation pop-ups do not disappear.  For #defines positions of tool-tips is the same (touching below), but it is not causing windows disappear issue.

This is not bothering me anymore, I'm just trying to help you debug the product which in general, I like a lot.

These things will be fixed in 22.0.2.  A partial fix (for copying comments from mouse-over, and list-symbols dismissing on mouse movement) will be in a future hot fix for 22.0.1 (probably hot fix rev 3, if there is one before 22.0.2).
