Description cezariusz 2015-04-09 15:26:53 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201504030001)
Java: 1.8.0_25; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.25-b02
Runtime: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.8.0_25-b18
System: Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64; Cp1250; pl_PL (nb)

Please show the Javadoc tooltip window automatically when hovering over a class or method, without necessity of pressing Ctrl. Or at least add an option to do so. That's the way Eclipse works and it's much more convenient in my opinion (on Ctrl+hover is shows menu with "Open declaration" and "Open Declared Type" actions).
