I am using the easiest way of tooltip code that posted in this answer by @AlexG. it works very well but in long tooltips, it doesn't break the lines in output (as shown in the following screen shot)

enter image description here

Q1: How can I use this tooltip with fixed width?

Q2: How can I change the shape of this tooltip box? e.g. a hurt shape or circle instead of rectangle. (at least rounded corner rectangle.)

  1. For multiline text, wrap the tip text into a \parbox of given width:
   \tooltip****{foo}{\parbox{0.8\linewidth}{... long text ...}}
  1. For rounded corners, replace \fcolorbox in the tooltip code with, e. g., \tcbox from package tcolorbox
   %\fcolorbox{black}{#7}{#8}%
   \tcbox[colframe=black,colback=#7,size=fbox,arc=1ex]{#8}%

    ++1, I have nothing to say. – user108724 Sep 27 '19 at 9:57
  • @C.F.G Thank you! By chance, do you use it in a right-to-left writing context? I would like to know whether it is usable there too. I only tested with English text. – AlexG Sep 27 '19 at 11:41

    @C.F.G Clickable references in the tooltip box are possible only with the NON-draggable tooltip variants (\tooltip command with 2 and more *). This is due to a limitation of the PDF file format. But you can disable hyperlinks inside the box: \tooltip{my Theorem}{\begin{NoHyper}\ref{thm:2}\end{NoHyper}} – AlexG Dec 3 '19 at 14:53
