PyCharm 2016.2 Help

'Lens' Mode

Hover the mouse pointer over a warning, error stripe or just some section on the scroll bar outside of the scroll box. PyCharm shows the source code fragment annotated with the warning/error messages.

This helps viewing the context a marker applies to, and the source code outside of the editor visible area.


This behavior is enabled by default.

To toggle the lens mode

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Open the Appearance page of the Settings dialog.
    • Right-click the code analysis marker on top of the current editor.
  2. Select or clear the check box Show editor preview tooltip.
