Hello,

May I suggest using hover states to achieve this effect? Basically, the way this works is, you can put a transparent shape with a hover state holding the definition of the acronym you wish to define. This way, when the mouse rolls over and triggers the hover state, you can set the transparent shape to display the text. 

I've found this blog to be very helpful in detailing how to achieve this. 

For your reference, you can find hover states in the section of the screen below:

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Joe

Thanks Joe! Yes this is a good idea, but is was hoping for some "automatic" way to do that. Maybe some attribute that could be added to the text (like BOLD, but of course not that one) that i could paint the text and when the cursors hovers it would flip to a bubble help. 

The problem of hotspot and transparent shapes is that text will move during editing and I dont want to chase them over 800 slides !
