You can however control whether the layout and schematic viewers are opened when highlighting.
In the RVE dialog
- Select the menu Setup > Options
- In the Categories list select Schematic Viewer
- Unselect the Show netlist schematics on highlighting check box
- Click Apply then Close
Note: These changes will apply to the next RVE session so select the RVE menu File > Exit.

Manually add the above line to your ~/.rvedb file which was written by RVE.
As an example:
echo "*lvsShowSchematicOnHighlight: 0" | cat >> ~/.rvedb
