Draw attention to an inline help icon or button by making it pulse, then make it disappear after it has been clicked.


There are 2 separate pieces of functionality that can be applied to either an icon or button. You can make the icon or button pulse for a set number of seconds, and/or you can remove the icon after the help item has been viewed.

  1. In the Editor window, scroll down to the Inline Help section:

  1. Click the Enable Inline Help / Tooltip toggle to Yes.
  2. Click the Customize Icon/Button toggle to Yes.
  3. If you would like to show the inline help as a button, click the Show As Button toggle to Yes.
  4. If you would like the icon or button to pulse, click the Show Pulse toggle to Yes.

  5. Adjust the Pulse Duration.
  6. Click the Remove Icon After View toggle to Yes to control whether or not the icon disappears after being clicked.
