In debug mode I cannot see variable values when I move cursor over them

In Delphi 10.2 Tokyo when I debug a multidevice application, I'm not able to see the values of variables when I move the mouse pointer over them (or click/select them) .

Clearly it is a very useful functionality (that worked well in older versions of Delphi).

Is it disabled? How can I re-enable it?

If I hit CTRL+F5 then the variable and its value are correctly showed in the watch-list; but it is a much slower and annoying procedure.

Thanks.

Note (after seeing a reply): we have the Delphi 10.2 Tokyo Professional + Mobile version

I also asked this question a while ago, but for Berlin. I have the Starter edition and it is one of the features you don't get in the free versions.

What platform are you targeting? I've seen this behavior especially on Android, but not so much on the others. Also make sure the "Debug Information" setting in the Project Options dialog is set to "Debug Information", not "Limited Debug Information".

I just checked and it's "Debug information", I'm targeting Win32, but the problem is still there when I target Win64 or Android ....
