Scrolling in Tool Tips

I have seen this topic mentioned in the community...the ability to scroll in table that appear in Tool Tips.  This seems like a must have when it comes to Tool Tips.  There is a bunch of results that cannot be viewed because the Tool Tips box closes as soon as you move the mouse off of a visual.  I have heard numerous complaints in our office regarding this limitation.

What you want to do instead is to use a Report Page Tooltip.

In Power BI for Ipad it’s possible to scroll down a tooltip. However, I couldn’t do the same on a Web Browser. Does anyone how to do it?

same here, have you found any solution to this? the solution exposed doesn't seem to work for me. I created report pages tooltips and as soon as the table appears and I want to click on the table or scroll, it suddently disappears. Very annoying issue, users can't use it that way. Please does anyone have a solution for this? it should be a highly reported issue since it is a really basic use. Thank you.

@Greg_Deckler Report page tooltips still don't let you scroll the window. If you have a table in the report tooltip that's higher than 240px you'll get scroll bars, but you can't scroll with the mouse wheel or arrow keys. If I'm wrong about that, please explain how it is done.

I think still the issue was not resolved, any solution is there kindly help on this

Yes, we are coming across this issue on a dashboard we have created. Our business partners are not impressed with this, hopefully something that can be addressed...seems like a minor thing but takes away from the effectiveness of the dashboard. A workaround might be to create a separate page to drill down into the data that's appearing in the pop-out tables?
