  • Using hovercards with Chrome (current version), Windows 10, (all updates installed), I've noticed an intermittent tendency for hovercards to stay open when I want them to close and get out of the way. This happens even if I hover the mouse over a different link, or click somewhere in white space. A possible solution to this (and concerns others have had about their placement) might be to give them a "handle" that can be grabbed and dragged, along with an "x" (close) button that can be used to close a particular hovercard, if desired.
  • By default, hovercards do not show tags that are on articles. While I understand the reasoning for this, it would be useful if the hovercard could indicate if a deletion tag is on the article. Others may have a desire to see other tags that might be on the article. One way to accommodate the various needs of different users would be to have an opt-in to show tags. It wouldn't be necessary to fully expand the tag -- instead just show whatever appears within the curly braces, up to the first pipe -- and perhaps highlight it with some color. This would only apply to tags at the top of the article, within the text that the hovercard normally grabs.

  • This one is Phab:T92932 - I've added your suggestion. Thanks. Note that an "x" (close) mechanism was declined in Phab:T105782
  • I've filed the suggestion as Phab:T145249 - Hovercards is generally intended as a simple preview extension. This feature would make some sense in the future-planned "advanced hovercards", which will hopefully integrate and improve upon all the features currently available in Navigation_popups. However, it is possible to do this with Navigation popups already, if you tweak your js, to include popupPreviewKillTemplates=false; - See an example in this edit of how I added it to my global.js - See screenshot of results in use. - See Navigation_popups#Configuration (optional) for that and other options.

You can also use the Escape key (Esc) to hide the currently displayed hovercard. This works both for when you're actively hovering over the link and when it's being sticky.
