I pasted a Devonthink item link somewhere in a project and the image of the link won't go away. The only way to get rid of it is restarting Scrivener. See the screenshot.

That’s a standard macOS tooltip, you’ll note the same thing happening in TextEdit. I’ve seen those do what you describe now and then, in a variety of programs. Sometimes you have to restart the software, but sometimes you can get rid of it by triggering another tooltip in the same program, or by triggering the same one that is stuck. I even once had one so stuck I had to log out of my account to get rid of it.

Are you saying it comes back repeatedly, this same one? Haven’t ever had that happen.
