Hello

Can someone help me set up a tooltip like the one in the link below for a PDF document, please.

This is the tooltip style I would like to have https://www.jqueryscript.net/tooltip/Minimalist-Animated-Hover-Tooltip-Plugin-with-jQuery-Viewitle.h... Try the demo, please.

This tooltip will be used in many instances of my PDF doc, which is being created in InDesign.

I have no familiarity with JavaScript, hence if someone find a solution, please educate me on the step-by-step to set it up and use it.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

To followup, it's not really possible in Acrobat by any reasonable means. You can use the Mouse Enter/Exit event to show/hide a separate button that displays the "tooltip" content you want, but it wouldn't be able to follow the mouse around like the example does.

The link is for a page which uses browser JavaScript. This is completely different from PDF JavaScript. There is no way I can think of to do this style in a PDF.

I understand that the link is for browser, and I am after one for InDesign that enable such tooltip on PDF.

You can apply a regular tooltip to any form field you add to a PDF, very similar to that one, sans the fancy animation.

Regular tooltip is sans panache, there should be a javascript for InDesign that enable such tooltip.

This does not seem to be possible. It is a limitation of the design of PDF, not an InDesign lack. If you want panache, you probably need to design in HTML5.

It might be possible to program such a thing in Acrobat using JavaScript. I'll be able to test it out later tonight. But there's nothing you can do in InDesign that will transfer over when you export to PDF from InDesign.
