this meets my experience:
~10 seconds - macOS
~5 seconds - PC
Tested with FMP16.0.1 AND 16.0.2 on macOS 10.13 AND Win7 (via Parallels VM).
Could be this Tooltip/Ballon-Help function is based on OS' native functions.

Thank you for your post.
The tooltip display time is controlled by the operating system. For Mac, the display time is 12 seconds. For Windows, the display time is 4 seconds. However, if you mouse down once the tooltip appears, you should be able to keep it open longer.
TSGal - thanks for the official word on this, that's great to know! Unfortunately, I'm not having much luck with the mouse down - which in any case wouldn't be a very convenient method for tooltips on buttons.
