-**Detail:** //I spoke with John Morse, the Rhino user interface developer, and he says that Rhino toolbars are "child windows"​. ​ When the mouse pointer hovers over an individual tool button, a timer is started.  If the cursor does not move off the icon for the duration of the tooltip delay timer, then another child window is created and the tooltip information ​is displayed ​in this new, small, child window. ​ It appears that UltraMon is also reading the mouse over event, but is not passing through the event information,​ so Rhino'​s tooltip delay timer never starts, ​so the tooltip is never displayed. ​ It appears that disabling these two UltraMon controls makes it so the Rhino tooltip delay timer process works as it was intended.//+**Detail:** //I spoke with John Morse, the Rhino user interface developer, and he says that Rhino toolbars are "child windows"​. ​ When the mouse pointer hovers over an individual tool button, a timer starts.  If the cursor does not move off the icon for the duration of the tooltip delay timer, then another child window is created and the tooltip information ​displays ​in this new, small, child window. ​ It appears that UltraMon is also reading the mouse over event, but is not passing through the event information,​ so Rhino'​s tooltip delay timer never starts, ​and the tooltip is never displayed. ​ It appears that disabling these two UltraMon controls makes the Rhino tooltip delay timer process works as it was intended.//
