          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
