    Is there a way to create a pop-up in Word so that when someone hovers over a word that the pop-up would appear (could be an image or a paragraph) in, say, the upper right-hand corner of the document and remain there as long as the user hovers over the word?

    I found something almost like I want by using a footnote or creating a bookmark with a hyperlink, but it's not really the answer I'd like.

    Maybe it's not possible...but, thought I'd ask.

    Is it the "comment" feature you're after?

    Like the footnote and bookmark work-around, this isn't quite what I'm looking for because I want a "real" pop-up with the ability to place a graphic there or text, and not have the reviewer name appear, etc. Like a pop-up would work on a web page.

    I don't think that's possible.
