Click here to move the floating palette

I've been using Melody Assistant for over 15 years so I'm pretty familiar with its main features.  Recently I updated my Mac version to 64 bits, and at first it seemed fine, but I've recently noticed a few niggling issues.  
 
Currently I'm confused about this message "Click here to move the floating palette" which appears to crop up in the Help window at inappropriate times.  That is to say, most of the time!  I only have to rest my mouse on any button in any palette, and instead of the message telling me what that button is for, I get "Click here...".
 
I'm definitely using the 64 bit app, on Mac OS X Mojave 10.14.6
 
This isn't a show stopper because I know what most of the buttons do anyway, but it's just annoying.
 
Any ideas?

On my system, when the help window is showing, the message is right when the mouse hovers notes, text elements, menus, etc. However, the "click here to move..." message is triggered when the mouse hovers icons (action palette for example) and sometimes an explanatory message appears but it doesn't match the current icon. I'll point this (second point) out to the Myriad team.

Many thanks.  I'll stop worrying about it now.

The "click here" contextual help message seems to appear when the mouse is over any palette but the Master Palette, where the message changes in accord with the button over which the mouse is hovering.  These messages are correct, as far as the Master Palette is concerned.  Where they are wrong is on the Windows menu, where they are not properly connected to the menu items.  (I suspect that they were hard-coded in the same order as the menu options were at one point, and when the order of options was changed, the order of the contextual help messages was not.)  In any case, Didier said in a post that this has already been fixed in the next sub-version.
