    Question Pop Up Text

    Never had to use this before, but figure there must be an option somehow in Xara...

    When someone clicks on a text, similar to when it is a hyperlink it opens a new window or page, I want them to hover or click over/on a set "word" and have a text box pop up with some text in it that layers on top of everything else. Just a small box. Think if you need a disclaimer and have only like 25 words in a small box you need to appear when they hover over something then disappear when they are no longer hovering over the word that this is linked to.

    Sorry if this is here I searched for a while found nothing, and been up 2 days working on this site last minute - so my brains fried or I could prolly figure it out eventually if I had more of my brain avail

    You can also use a JS PopUp Box with a Keyword toggle : https://initiostar.co.uk/demo/JSpopup/ - the idea originates from an Acorn approach to using hidden HTML Classes.

    Info Re: Pop Up Text

    This is the simplest I can make with pure Xara.

    Just add text blocks to the MouseOver layer and activate with linked text on MouseOff, using a Link of "javascript:" (The colon is needed).

    • Paragraph border when added FAILS to display.
    • If links and text blocks of another link overlap you
    • Repel Text Under may through things out.
    • Do use Anchor to text as well as adding new text or moving repel objects will throws things out of alignment.

    Acorn - installed and active Xara software: Cloud+/Pro+, XDPX, XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7, Xara Xtreme 5, back through time (to CC's Artworks).
