Hi all,

I think sometimes it would be nice to have tooltips in the footnote
references, so I can see the contents of each footnote definition,
especially when I'm in a narrowed subtree; so I've tried to write some
code. I have achieved a "semi-automatic" solution. It doesn't work bad
at all, but I'm not entirely convinced either. With a minor mode the
`org-activate-footnote-links' function is overridden, and tooltips content
for all footnotes in the document are added or updated after a couple of
actions when you finish writing or editing a footnote:
`org-edit-src-exit' and `org-mark-ring-goto'. And that's where the
automatic part ends. Beyond that, tooltips must be updated/added by
calling the `my-org-fn-make-tooltips' function.

Here is a short video demo: https://cloud.disroot.org/s/a4gejYc6PSwNWHY

I attach the code of my poor man's footnote tooltips. Of course, any
comment and/or feedback is appreciated.

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
