  • You can turn off the screen tips under File > Options > General > ScreenTip style:

    Choose "Don't show ScreenTips"

    This would disable any functionality. It just eliminates display of the tips.

  • A new article has been posted by the Visio Product team which discusses how to make changes to the Visio user interface. See the article at

  • I think I see the problem Jeeban is describing and have been wondering myself how to resolve it. It's not about turning off tooltip text altogether, it's about keeping Visio from being quite so helpful!

    The issue is that the tooltip text for each item on my add-in ribbon shows my descripton text, as it should, but below that it also shows:
       <name of my tab>
       Press F1 for add-in help.

    In many cases this will be confusing for users of my add-in because if they press F1 it will take them to Visio help, not to my help.

    Is that the text you're trying to eliminate, Jeeban?

  • I'm looking for a solution to the issue that you've described, getting rid of the "Press F1 for add-in help." that appears below the screentip for my custom buttons.

       <name of my tab>
       Press F1 for add-in help.

    If someone knows how to get rid of that "Press F1 for add-in help." or trap it in an event so I can handle it... just for my customized buttons... that would be great!

  • This appears to be a ribbon FAQ, and unfortunately the answer is "no, you can't do that, and here is why":

  • you can use keyboard remapper like KeyTweak, just change the F1 to something else
