Moden visual tooltips is a great improvement :slight_smile:


As always, thanks very much for the update. I always liken the monthy update to opening Christmas presents. This month feels like we got a bunch of underwear and socks - kind of disappointing that it’s not the PBI equivalent of a puppy or a Playstation 5, but hey we all need underwear and socks too.

Totally agree with you that the Modern Visual Tooltip is the best pair of socks in the box - it’s pretty limited in scope at the moment, but kind of reminds me of how they rolled out conditional formatting - for a while it seemed like every month we were getting new conditional formatting options on additional visuals, and I suspect the same will be true for the Modern Visual Tooltip.

I played around with this for a while yesterday exploring its capabilities and limitations, and have a video on my initial assessment coming out on the EDNA YouTube channel tomorrow.

Thanks again for always keeping us up to date on the new features - much appreciated!
