Glossary hotspots

About expanding glossary hotspots

The Glossary Hotspot wizard finds glossary terms within topics and marks them in the topics. You can mark all terms to convert to expanding hotspot when you generate or preview output.


Expanding glossary hotspots require Internet Explorer 4.0 or later. If they are used in a style, they require Internet Explorer 5.0 or later. Netscape Navigator doesn’t support expanding glossary hotspots.

The Glossary panel is not supported in Oracle Help. Definitions appear inline instead of in a hotspot.

The glossary appears in the printed documentation and appears at the end of the page.

Control the hotspot appearance by modifying the glossary term and character style in the Styles editor (accessible from the Stylesheets button in the Product Manager pod).

The Output Generator With Glossary Restyling script restyles the glossary as popups or tool­tips and generates output for a selected layout. See About ExtendScript Toolkit support.
