It's the year of "the Einstein", isn't it?! ;-)

Yes, but not with mousemove :-)

Put this into the script of the image of Albert:

on mouseenter
    show fld "Info about Mr. Einstein" #***
end mouseenter

#***or whatever your field is named

on mouseleave
   hide fld "Info about Mr. Einstein"
end mouseleave

Supposed you have the info in a field that you want to show...
