Thank you for your post.
I am unable to replicate the issue using FileMaker Pro 14.0.6 under both Mac OS X 10.11.6 and Windows 7. The issue does not occur with FileMaker Pro 15.0.1. I do not have access to any of the ETS versions of FileMaker Pro 15.
Here are the steps I took:
1. I created a new database file.
2. On the layout, I added a button, named it "Button", with the action Single Step "Show Customer Dialog".
3. In Inspector, I assigned the Tooltip "This is a test".
4. After saving the layout and going to Browse mode, when I hover my cursor over the button, "This is a test" appears.
Let me know what I'm doing differently than you so I can replicate the issue.
Do you have any plug-ins installed. If so, temporarily disable them and try again.
TSGal, thank you for response:
I checked it again:
I had that issue with a Button Bar object.
I have no problems with those old Button objects and Tooltips
And I also made a mistake:
I use Button Bar objects with 1 button only.
I did put the tool tip on the Button Bar object itself (that was the mistake and it does not work).
Now I put the tool tip on the Button Bar Segment of that single button and it is working now.
I use FMPA 14.0.8 OS X version
there is no FMPA 14.0.8
oops, sorry, it is 14.0.6
