    I've been asked by one of the academic staff to find out if it is possible to create a document where when the mouse pointer hovers over a word a small popup (similar to that created by footnotes) would appear with some preset information in it. The document will eventually be published in PDF format where, I suspect, anything Word does won't work!

    Where to start looking, I've tried using "Screentips" in the document, which sort of works but includes "Ctrl + Click to follow link" and doesn't work in PDF.

    Has anyone got any ideas please?

    TIA

    Word doesn't really have such a feature. You could use comments instead, which can be displayed in balloons.

    Sounds like a Word "comment". I don't know whether the Adobe PDFMaker macro converts Word comments to Acrobat annotations.
