I am creating a document using InDesign and then exporting it out as an Interactive PDF file. Whenever someone cursors over a media file inside the PDF, a message pops up (like a tool tip) that says "click to activate".
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Unfortunately, this doesn't solve the issue. It causes the media to lauch as soon as the page becomes visible. I want it to lauch when they click on it...I just don't want the tool tip to show.
Does anybody have found a fix to this problem?
I have exactly the same problem: I would like for the tooltip to disappear, but still to have to click on the object to have it start.
Any help appareciated!
I am going to give a dumb suggestion so don't laugh.
I assume like in fields for a Form ther ise two boxes when you fist click on Properties
ones for title. ones for tooltip. If you don't fill out the one for tooltip there is no tool tip.
Have you clicked on the movie within Acrobat and looked for Properties. On a Mac click once to select the you hold down Control key or (right-click and wat fot context menu to come up then you choose properties. For PC may be completely different.
Also, In adobe preferences there may be a setting to turn tooltips off.
Not dumb, but I can't see how to do that.
When I Ctrl-click on my object - which is a swf file - I do not have any option regarding tooltips.
The only place where you can remove those tooltips is in your preferences, which are personal and only applied to your own program.
It doesn't mean that everybody else also disabled their tooltips - and therefore isn't good enough for making those tooltips disappear for everybody.
Thanks a lot for you idea though! Keep them coming!

You can't. The "click to activate" tooltip (and for that matter ALL tooltips in Acrobat and Adobe Reader) are fixed. You can't change what they say, nor can you turn them off.
Can't you click on "Properties" and change the tool tip name there?
You can on fields a Swf Movie is a Object, isn't it??
Rich media annotations aren't regular objects, they don't have the same properties as a form field.
The "click to activate" tooltip isn't part of the annotation at all - it's a message from Acrobat's UI. As I said you cannot change those.
