When hovering the cursor over an operation the Tooltip menu is displayed. Can this Tooltip display be turned off and only the Operation name displayed instead?

You can turn off the Tooltip display by unchecking 'File -> Utilities -> Customer Defaults -> Manufacturing -> User Interface -> Dialog Boxes -> Show Picture Tooltips in Create Object Dialog Boxes'.

To disable Tooltips in only one template file open the file, select the operation, MB3 -> Properties and delete the "NX$CAM_TEMPLATE" Category with its contents.
