How to switch off yellow tooltips in OpenOffice writer


When I scroll thru a document in OO writer using the mouse scroll button, after every scroll movement an annoying yellow tooltip pops up to tell me on which page I am, which chapter etc. This often blocks the text which I want to read and it is very distracting as well.

I cannot find how to turn it off. Google doesn't help, most likely because I search for the wrong expression. Anyone knows how to switch off these yellow pop-ups?

In OpenOffice.org Writer, Tools - Options - OpenOffice.org - General, try de-selecting Tips (it might be Extended Tips).

Somehow I expected it in one of te 'view' menus and I overlooked this one.

Thanks
