Tooltips for buttons

Hi everyone!


Could someone tell whether it is possible to add some description to the button on hover? Something like a tooltip that will tell where this button refers to?

Hi @Anonymous,


Based on my test, it is not possible to meet your requirememt currently, Maybe you can add the comment manually like this to work around.

No, I am short of place, so button text is not suitable. Thanks, anyway!

For us in december release it's not visible... We see action -> type -> Q&A / Bookmark / Back. But I expected a fourth option; tooltip...


Am I looking at the wrong place?


Edit; I found out that I can make a hard included text, but not what I hoped for.... I was hoping for making a special 'tooltip page' and linking a button to it, but that's not what is build in december update I see now.

Yes, wrong place.  Right now you are looking at the options under Type which is the wrong place to look. Under Action you have: Type,  Bookmark, and Tooltip which is usually blank (the default CTRL-Click...).  Put your tooltip into the tooltip box and it will show when you hover over the button.  

Hello tjd, 


It works like a charm, thank you so much for the tip!
