Hi cp550 and welcome to the RH community.
Tooltips are designed for short phrases and there is a limit on the number of characters they can have - sorry I don't know what that is (255 rings a bell) - so I suspect this is what you are up against. Could you handle the links by saying "Click here to...." with "here" being the hyperlink to the reference section.
Thanks for the speedy reply.
I don't think the problem is the number of characters that can appear in the tooltip, as I'm having no problem with putting in as long a reference as I need. My problem is the actual cutting from the RH "document". If I try to cut a relatively short piece of text from RH, <100 characters say, and then paste it into word (which I did to check that there wasn't any weird formatting), I get a line break at between 80-90 characters and always on a complete word, i.e. it doesn't break in the middle of the word.
I was hoping for some solution that would allow me to copy a reference from one part of my RH file and then paste the whole thing in to my tooltip, but if this is not solveable then I'll just have to build in some extra time to my project.
You should not be using Word for this, because the form field for the tooltip is balking at the line break (Word ignores it and wraps the text, but RH is interpreting an actual line break).
Instead, paste the entire string into Notepad, toggle off "Word Wrap," and then ensure that all of it is on one line. Copy that and paste it onto the tooltip field.
