Disable highlight object under mouse

Hi all,

Is there a way I can disable 'View -> Highlight Object Under Mouse' feature using klayoutrc? I tried to close&save KLayout while I had it already disable it by the menu, but it didn't changed something on the configuration file (Note: I tried it with clean start of KLayout with no flags passed, e.g. -t, -c, etc).

Thanks in advance,


  • Hi Chris,

    I can't confirm there is a bug. So maybe there is an issue with writing klayoutrc.

    Could you check if you have permissions to write?

    Other causes may be:

    • there is a macro which resets this entry on startup
    • $KLAYOUT_HOME points somewhere else


  • Hi Matthias,

    You were right about $KLAYOUT_HOME, thanks.
