Jim - this is what I was looking for - a quicker way to learn what the problem is. A simple mouse-over is all I need - thanks!
The problem is that with Dynamic Reference Viewer turned on, the Tip that pops up on mouse-over only displays for a few milliseconds... Not enough time for my aging eyes and brain to catch, I really like the DRV (the blue arrows that point to the parents of the feature) and use it regularly.
I guess I have to choose which I like better.
That is something we should look into fixing. The tooltip shouldn't go away so quickly.
However, one other way you can get to error/warning messages is to right click on the item that has the error/warning and select What's Wrong from the context menu.
I hope this helps,
