Eliminate the screentip that appears over hyperlinks
When you hover the mouse over a hyperlink, PowerPoint displays a little yellow box with some text in it. You can change this to any text you like by editing the hyperlink and changing the ScreenTip text, but you can't eliminate the screentip entirely.
This little macro will remove the text from all of the screentips in all of the hyperlinks on each slide in your presentation. It doesn't touch hyperlinks on masters, templates, layouts, etc. It replaces the text with nothing, which produces a small dot rather than the usual square yellow blank screentip. It doesnt eliminate the screentip entirely but does make it as unintrusive as possible.
Sub BlankTheScreentips() Dim osl As Slide Dim ohl As Hyperlink For Each osl In ActivePresentation.Slides For Each ohl In osl.Hyperlinks ' This sets the screentip to a space 'ohl.ScreenTip = " " ' This sets the screentip to null, even less intrusive than a space ohl.ScreenTip = "" Next Next End Sub
