Unfortunately there is no command. If the tooltip property has a value the engine shows it automatically.

OK, so here's going out on a limb...

What about using a transparent .png as a cursor image at the system level (can this be done on a mac?) With a pointer/cursor that is transparent, but with an outline, items under the mouse cursor will be visible.

Linda could find the color that she can most readily see and use this as the cursor outline - at least now it's only an outline image that obscures what's beneath it.

Just a thought,
Cheers ... r.png?dl=0

So, I have got this far, and this SHOULD work with cursors over the revTools stack, but does not.

Presumably the revTools stack automatically unlocks the cursors as soon as one mouses over it, which is a blocker to my stack.
Here's the stack.
