The hover documentation is the main reason I'm using Eclipse, but it doesn't activate when there are errors on the line, which doesn't really make sense since that is when you actually want the hover documentation to appear. Is there a setting I can change to allow hover documentation with errors on the line?
-Thanks.

If you have the Combined Hover enabled in preferences
(Preferences->C/C++->Editor->Hovers, then the Problem Description is
probably taking precedence over the Documentation. You can set a
separate modifier to bring up Documentation. For example setting the
modifier to Alt + Shift will allow you to override the error hover by
holding Alt + Shift as you hover over the method.
