I am trying to create tooltips in a document to show footnotes instead of
listing them at the end. I tried out an example shown in the website:
Wle compiling, it compains that \pdftooltip is an unknown command. Could it
be because my tex installation is slightly old? Maybe, I will have to
reindstall the pdfcomment package with the latest?

Giving the document below:



\MyShortCut{\textthing}{tooltip here}{just an example}
\MyShortCut{\Td}{\tau_\textrm{d}}{reptation time}
\MyShortCut{\Tr}{\tau_\textrm{R}}{Rouse time}

Use pdflatex to compile, then open in Acrobat Reader and
put the mouse pointer above $\tau$'s

\Td = 3 Z \Tr

Or in text \textthing.
