Embedded Chart Mouse Hover Difference - XL2007 vs XL2003

For an embedded chart, XL2007 appears to behave differently than XL2003. In
all previous versions of Excel, an embedded chart on a worksheet did NOT
have to be selected (i.e. be the active object) in order for the "chart
tips" to display information about a series (e.g. "Series 1 Point 1 Value:
1.1"). The user could simply hove the mouse over a point on a series and the
"chart tips" box would appear.

In XL2007, the "chart tips" will not display the yellow tips box with the
series/point/value information unless the chart is selected (i.e. the resize
handles are visible). Is there a setting to change this behavior back to the
old way, or is this a new "feature".

Can someone else confirm this behavior on their version of XL2007. Am I
missing something simple?

Tom

---Line Chart Example:
Data : Mouse_hover_chart_tip
1.1 : Series 1 Point 1 Value: 1.1
2.2 : Series 1 Point 2 Value: 2.2
3.3 : Series 1 Point 3 Value: 3.3
4.4 : Series 1 Point 4 Value: 4.4

Hi,

It's a feature of the new chart objects in xl2007. The chartobject needs to
be selected in order to register mouse events.
