I'm having a really annoying problem with EG 5.1 that I hope you can help me out with.
Sometimes when I start typing a command the help box appears and it won't go away.
For example, if I'm trying to write the following condition: "if missing(value" a yellow help box appears which describes the MISSING function and the parameters that the function uses.
The problem is that about 1/3rds of the times the help box won't go away no matter what I do. The only way to make it disappear is to exit EG, but sometimes that is impossible as some of my projects take up to 2 hours to run.
This is VERY annoying, as sometimes I have up to 3 help boxes floating around in my screen, making it difficult to see my code.
I've looked for ways to disable the help boxes or a way to reload the UI, but I haven't found out a solution yet.
I'm attaching a picture showing you what I just described in the post.
Thanks in advance for the help.

I've heard of this before, without a solution.
I believe it is solved in later versions of SAS EG.
Hope I'm wrong though
