AC in-game hints are terribly Integrated

I don't mind having the game hints displayed on the screen but they always appear when I'm about to do something new. That wouldn't necessarily be a problem except for the fact that I'm always in the middle of stalking someone and concentrating carefully, then I catch a glimpse in the hint box right before it disappears never to be seen again since apparently it assumes you stop in the middle of a restricted zone to read a new message. I can't play and read at the same time. There should always be a safe way of reading the hints instead of having me stop everything I'm doing while the game keeps playing so I, the user, can take a moment to learn something the game's character probably already knows.
