I have created a custom insert link button by inserting an item based on /sitecore/templates/System/Html Editor Profiles/Html Editor Button in html editor profile rich text editor. It is working fine and meeting all the requirement except that it is not showing the tooltip on hover. I am not sure where to set the tooltip as the above template doesnot have any tooltip field. I can see that there is no title field in the rendered html for that button. I do not wan to use WebEdit button as in that case I will have to change the existing js files instead of patching the js file.

Just set a display name of your button to whatever you want to be a tooltip:

    Thanks Marek, that saved my day, I thought i will have to manipulate some script or css as I was using the existing insertlink (modified) js for the button. Jun 13, 2019 at 9:58
