Hi Greg,
The atom-name balloons should still show, and that is the default  
behavior.  They still pop up in at least the Mac OSX/X11 version of  
1.2304 I'm using on my desktop.  I guess the first thing to do is  
make sure they are still set to display in your Preferences:

menu: Favorites... Preferences, General category
"Show atomspec balloon" should be set to "true"

If that was somehow set to "false" just change it to "true" and click  
Save to save the preferences.  If it was already set to "true," there  
must be some other problem.  If so, let us know what platform you are  
using.  Best,
