Power BI Show and hide text boxes

I have several long descriptions that need to be shown so I would like a tab titled "Descriptions" that has key words that when clicked on will open a text box to show the description.

You can use bookmarks to show/hide objects on the page. This video from Guys in A Cube goes over that. You would need to put hidden objects on the page over the words. A box with no background/border for example, but that has an action item of triggering a bookmark.

Use BookMarks for that. Let me know if you need any help. Create Bookmarks and link button click to bookmarks.

Thanks but I am new at this so I will need some details on how to do this if you don't mind. 

@akinsps - the video I linked to would be a great place to start. Microsoft's own documentation on it is here. There is really no good way to show someone everyting there is to know about creating bookmarks to fulfill your needs in a community forum post. It would be several thousand words with images. 

 

MS Documentation + Guys in a Cube (Both MS employees) are a great starting point here.

Or You can simply add ToolTip also to the button so when the user hovers over the button, The tooltip box would appears and when users moves cursor away from button ToolTip Box would disapper.
