How I can get back the design before the Splunk 6.3.1 update?

Now my panels have a mouse over that shows info in the worst place ever (lol).

Hi.

Every Splunk-App loads a CSS-File called dashboard.css per se, edit or create this file in your App-Directory:
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/$APPNAME/appserver/static
(leading to a file: $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/$APPNAME/appserver/static/dashboard.css )
with the following content:

.panel-footer {
    height: 26px !important;
    overflow: visible !important;
    padding: 0 0 0 0 !important;
    border: 0 0 0 0 !important;
    margin: 0 0 0 0 !important;
}

Or without changing background-color:

.panel-footer {
    height: 26px !important;
    overflow: visible !important;
    padding: 0 0 0 0 !important;
    border: 0 0 0 0 !important;
    margin: 0 0 0 0 !important;
    background-color: transparent !important;
}

This is App-specific, though. Just copy/edit the file in every App and it should work.
Put the code at the end of an existing CSS-file, so it 'overwrites' the CSS class of that file, if its used there before (for example: the great Website-Monitoring-App ( https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1493/ ) uses '.panel-footer', put it at the end of the dashboard.css of that App and 'it works' ;).

This interferes or could interfere with link.visible/*/*='false/true', see: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.0/Viz/PanelreferenceforSimplifiedXML

There are other ways to include your own CSS or JS in a SimpleXML-Dashboard, have a look here:
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.4.0/Viz/CustomizeSimpleXML

What the CSS does:
Using the !important-rule 'overwrites' the Splunk-CSS-rules.

You must restart SPLUNKWEB after editing this file.

This works for Splunk 6.4.0 but could change in future releases, if Splunk changes CSS-classname or id, etc.

The mouse over in v6.3.1 is extremely annoying!! Most of time it block the part of chart I would like to see. Can't they just move it 1 inch above or make it transparent? The worst UI update in v6.3.1..
