Hi I am trying to display some information when someone hovers their mouse over the shape.

I see there is add notes but that isn't a good customer experience for them to click and view the message as I have lot of shapes which need to have tooltip

Hi @sashi.vakiti thanks for posting in the community! It is possible to create custom hover over text using our Conditional Formatting feature in Lucidchart. For detailed steps on how to achieve this I recommend taking a look at this Community post.  

I hope this helps. Feel free to let me know if this isn't what you are looking for or if you have any additional questions!

Hi @Vladimir R, thanks for flagging that! I’ve gone ahead and updated the links to the correct ones so they should be working now! Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions. Cheers!

I don’t see anything in conditional formatting that says “On hover”. Maybe I missed it?

Hi @Romuel, thanks for commenting! You can find this option when selecting "Icons" or “Dynamic Shapes” when creating a rule. To add the hover text, toggle ‘Custom Hover Text’ on and add the required text or formula.

This will then display when you hover your cursor over the added icon or dynamic shape. Here’s an example screenshot demonstrating this:

I hope this helps! Feel free to let me know if you have any questions :)
