    Great idea and easy to use, BUT confusing because although it inserts like a link and edits like a link and looks like a link, it isn't a link and you can't apparently have a link and a tooltip at the same time. If you click on a tooltip it takes you to the top of the page. Very annoying. If you edit an existing link and 'add' a tooltip it destroys the existing link. Really very annoying. I'm just hoping I'm missing something and the ability to have both at the same time is there, I just haven't worked it out yet.

    Hi Terry, thanks for the feedback. I have published a new version to allow the ability to specify a web link URL in addition to the tooltip. Please let me know if that addresses your issue. I'm unable to reproduce your other issue regarding links taking you to the top of the page. Could you please submit a bug in the issue tracker along with your version of Confluence and web browser? Thanks!

    Looks super useful! Do you have any plans to make this plug-in available for JIRA 7? Thanks

    Hi Marco, thanks for the feedback! We don't have any plans to make this available for JIRA right now. Are you looking to use them in your descriptions and comments? Tooltips are already built in to the fields. Feel free to add a request in the issue tracker and if there are enough votes we can take a stab at it.

    Definitely useful! Can really help to avoid inserting too much text on table cells just for clarifications.
