Tooltip

The Tooltip macro lets you assign a tooltip to another macro element on the page using the element’s ID. For example, you can assign a tooltip to a Span macro.  This is a span with a tooltip attached. The Tooltip macro does not impact the appearance of a page by altering the appearance of your element. 

To assign a Tooltip to an element, the targeted macro element must be created first. See the Parameters table for a list of macros that contain an ID parameter.
