I am trying to achieve a certain affect. I would like to be able to move my mouse across objects in my drawing and have a pop-up text box to display whatever I wish. Is this possible and if so how?

whatever you wish?
like the entity's properties? or some object data that you assign to the
entity?

Hyperlink command: explore in HELP, has a 'text box' feature
among others.
