Does anyone know how to 'saveas' or convert a word document with these 'balloon words' to a PDF that will continue to show the balloon words when you mouse over the text? I've attempted saving to a web page and launching Adobe Pro to create a file from a web page, but didn't work. Tried the obvious save as PDF and Convert to PDF as well. Thanks.

If we want to change the color text this is cool

I followed the direction, but my F9 is not working as demonstrated. Any other solutions. I have word 2010

Is there any way to increase the text box limit?

Great stuff, but you should specify which versions of Word support this feature, and whether or not the procedure is identical for all supported versions.

Ok, it's been years since I made this video, but it still works. Here are the written instructions. (And yes, they should have been placed here before, I confess I forgot I even did this video!) Ctrl+ F9 (key) will bring up {}. Paste this in the middle of the brackets: AutoTextList “wordseen”\s Nostyle \t “balloon word” replace the Wordseen with the text you want on the page and the Balloon Word with what you want the popup to read. Put your cursor (click) anywhere between the brackets and type the F9 key again to see your work.

thank you for the video! It works on Mac as well! However, my "Word seen" is highlighted in grey after I hide the code...Is there any way to remove the highlight or at least change it to another color? Appreciate!

It's OK - let's none of us have a cow - I've worked it out. I was using Alt+F9 and turning off my thingy !!!! DON'T DO THAT - don't turn off your thingy !!!

What is the name of the Word popup that provides quick access to bold, ital, colors, lists? And how can I modify it? -- David

This works great for me, except when I try to insert into a location within a list of items in a list with bullets. I hope that their is a work around for this.

How can I increase the character limit? I already done the pop up, but my text is too big for the box.

Hi Jennifer, I want to create a process alert to improve quality of document is it possible? Thankx

I'm putting in definitions of terms into the pop up box. It seems like the box size is limited to only 6 lines. Is there a way to control the size of the pop up box?

Thank you very much for this little tutorial. I liked it. But I do have a question. Is there a possibility to have a "clickable" popup message? Like those that we can find in android or iOS apps on our smartphone.

This does not work in my Word for Mac, do you have step by step instructions for a MAC with Word? I can get everything typed inside the brackets I just can't Hide the brackets to that I only see the Word I'm wanting to set up the popup to. .

Using office word 2016, cool, tried it and it works. but there are many words that I have to add pop ups. Isn't there any easier way to do so. We are using office 2016 in 21. century.

This is fantastic. Thanks for this video. To many times I was researching and only found the create a hyperlink method. This worked great for me. Thanks Jesica!

AutoTextList "word seen" \s No Style \t "balloon word"

+Jennifer Carr Thanks for posting the formula for easy copy/paste! It's kinda silly that the OP didn't include it in the video description!
Danny Keeley (3 years ago)
you could have pasted that code in the description (facepalm).
Diane Williams (3 years ago)
Not working for me in Word 2010 either.
Horace OX (4 years ago)
Tried it several times still not able to get it to work.  Perhaps you could give the instructions in paragraph form.
Shamaca Pettaway (3 years ago)
If you have a laptop, look to the keyboard. Do you have a "Fn" key? Is it the same color as your F9 key?. Try pressing Ctrl+Fn+ F9...It took me 3 hours to figure that out. HTH.
