If your documentation contains a lot of technical terms or acronyms, you can support your reader with a glossary.
Glossaries are usually limited to static lists, added as a chapter at the end of a manual.
However, Oxygen’s online help outputs offer a solution whereby users are no longer forced to leave the page they are reading: glossaries through tooltips. Tooltips are one-term glossary pop-ups that appear on screen if you hover your mouse over the term or acronym. If you click the term, the glossary item opens as a separate topic.
Your publication needs to contain a glossary map.
If this is not the case yet, add a ditamap to your publication.
You can give this map any name you like, but for clarity’s sake, we suggest you call it !Glossary.
