I searched a little and found some references on the website of Peter. But it is valid for RH2019 (modern).
I don't see how to define how the glossary is shown in the 'microsoft html help output properties'. (weird sentence :-)). I would like to obtain the effect of hoovering above a word giving an instant translation (from the glossary). In the modern interface, you can choose for expanding text/pop up/tooltip.
Once my project is finished (a few weeks left) I'll probably migrate the most recent version of RH, I suppose it is no problem there. But now I'm using RH2019 Classic.

Your options are in the Glossary Hotspot Wizard. Not sure if they work for CHMs. If not, try creating webhelp and then using the script Convert WebHelp to CHM. That sometimes adds functionality not built into CHMs.
Hello Peter I didn't try the wizard as it was not corresponding to my expectations. But now I did. Indeed the definition appears when clicking on it, besides the original word:
I could not find the way to transform it in a tooltip...
I think the tooltip is a New UI option.
You could try this https://www.w3schools.com/howto/howto_css_tooltip.asp but I'm not sure it will work in RoboHelp.
Ok. I'll leave it at that. Upgrade to 2020 is the way to go. thx
I don't know that tooltips will work in a CHM.
We'll see! thanks alot
