Creating my one Screen Tips in Word

By BetReed ·
I will be writing some technical documents using MS Word. These would be used on-line and I would love to use mouse-over (or pop-up boxes the way MS Help screens use hyperlinks) to display a definition of some terms. In Excel, you can add a Comment to a cell to accomplish the same thing. I haven't been able to find a way to do something similar in Word. I am using Office97 but have access to Word2000.

Try Insert>Comment. The word will be highlighted and when the mouse goes over it will pop up the comment.

Thank you so much for the quick help. It does exactly what I needed; I just wish now that I could change the color to gray. Will look through more Tech Republic hints.
Thanks again.
