JMP Tooltips

JMP provides descriptive tooltips (or hover labels) when you hover over items, such as the following:

Menu or toolbar options

Labels in graphs

Text results in the report window (move your cursor in a circle to reveal)

Files or windows in the Home Window

Code in the Script Editor

Tip: On Windows, you can hide tooltips in the JMP Preferences. Select File > Preferences > General and then deselect Show menu tips. This option is not available on macOS.
