When I edit variables using Live Editor, often it comes up wth "suggestions" with ? mark and information about the variable. How can I turn off such "suggestions"?

Go to the 'Home' tab in the MATLAB toolstrip and in the 'Environment' section, click 'Preferences'.
Select 'MATLAB > Editor/Debugger > Automatic Completions' and in the 'Suggestions and completions' section, select the 'Show on tab' option.
Click 'Apply' and 'Ok' to save the option.
The MATLAB Editor will now show suggestions and completions when the tab key is pressed, rather than showing them automatically.
Hope this helps.
