I have been sent a few form documents created in Microsoft Word which contain drop down fields that provide fill-in options upon hovering over those fields on the form. These form documents end in '.docx'. I do not own Microsoft Word for Mac, but am considering buying it or signing up for the Office 365 service for Mac so that I can fill in these fields using the drop down options. My question is: Will Microsoft Word for Mac or the Office 365 for Mac service allow me to use the drop down fields that provide fill-in options upon hovering? Or is this feature not available when using either Microsoft Word for Mac or the Office 365 service on a Mac? Any advice would be appreciated.

Any current version of Word will allow you to access whatever controls are being used in the documents you've seen. None of them provides a hover-text facility, however. If it's a drop-down or combo-box content control, you have to click on the control, then its down arrow to expand the options. Nevertheless, it is possible to simulate hover text via the use of a hyperlink attached to the control's range, but that's not the same as adding to the control, per se. Regardless, any current version of Word should display that hover text the same way.
