turn off highlight text 'Start thread' pop-up chat

I could do with some help.
I'd like to turn-off the 'Start thread' pop-up that appears when you highlight text in any repl.
I already have 'Code intelligence' disabled.

Thanks in advance.

7 month and this major, extremely annoying problem still exist. gj replit

I agree, just noticed this for the first time today and the overlay blocks code when I'm selecting text. That's a horrible experience. Please remove this automatic behavior.

This is absolutely the most annoying thing, please make an option to turn it off.

Same here it is very frustrating

Yeah, surprised that this is the only post requesting this? Very irritating to have a little pop-up appear right where I'm working constantly. Even if I was collaborating, 99% of the time I wouldn't need it right then.

Thanks for posting this. The 'Start thread' tooltip is incredibly annoying. Isn't there an option to turn it off?

It has really put me off replit.com which I've been using for years.

It's definitively irritating and useless to have it everywhere. Please provide a way to disable that "start thread". I have resorted to use a carefully designed ublock rule.

yep, it's really very annoying and now it's appears right on the code, not upper

I've managed to work around this by adding a filter in uBlock Origin that prevents the popups from appearing.

Hopefully there aren't any other annotation buttons that I'm blocking :)

I was able to get this to stop appearing by using Adblock in Chrome to block it. Right-click the popup > Adblock > block this ad

Hope this helps

this is insane and completely ruins this entire site.
