I am using Version 3 on Windows 95. A similar feature exists, but not in the way you describe it. Some palettes have buttons wherein a mouseover will cause some sort of note to appear in the status area of the palette's window. The BasicTypesetting palette is one example. Palettes which have buttons that use this feature in some way are: BasicTypesetting CompleteCharacters InternationalCharacters NotebookLauncher The effect is created by adding an option to the button's ButtonBox expression. The option is ButtonNote, and it can be a string of text. ButtonBox["foo", ButtonNote -> "this button pastes the word \"foo\"", Active -> True] // DisplayForm1 -- P.J.
