How it Works

The Tooltip macro is a simple plain text macro that adds a dynamic icon element anywhere on a Confluence page. Simply add the text that you want to display to users when they hover over or click the Tooltip icon. This is useful for annotations, definitions, acronyms, or anywhere you want to include additional detail without taking up precious space or impacting the design of your page layout.
