Changing popover settings

1. If the Popover Button Setup dialog box is not open in Layout mode, do one of the following:

If the popover is closed: Double-click the popover button, or select the popover button and choose Format menu > Display Popover.

If the popover is open: Select it and choose Format menu > Popover Button Setup.

2. Do one of the following.



Do this

Change the direction in which the popover opens on the layout

Click Left Popover left button, Right Popover right button, Above Popover above button, or Below Popover below button.

Or, place the arrow pointer on the popover's title bar area (even if the title bar is hidden) and drag the popover to a new direction.

Change the title of the popover

Type a title, with or without double quotation marks.

To specify a title based on a calculation, click Specify button and define the calculation. See Specify Calculation dialog box.

Show or hide the title bar (and the title)

Select or clear Show title bar.

The title bar and the area above it don't scroll. You can use this area to hold objects that need to stay visible when users scroll within the popover.

Showing or hiding the title bar does not change the position of the objects on the popover.

Assign one or more script triggers to the popover (if you want a script to run when you open or exit the popover)

Click Set Script Triggers and choose one or more script triggers. See Setting up script triggers and Automating tasks with scripts.
