Powerpoint screentip without hyperlink

Would like to add screentips to some PPT textbox and shapes.  I know I can add Screentips through the Insert Hyperlink dialog, but the "OK" button is disabled unless I enter an actual address for the hyperlink.  I tried entering a blank address, but that generates an error if the user clicks on the shape.  

I've got it working so that the hyperlink is to the current slide, so the slide doesn't change, and no error messages are presented if the user clicks on the shape.  However, I'm just wondering if there is a "better" or "best practice" for this functionality.

Unfortunately, there's not. What you're doing -- linking to the current slide -- would have been my suggestion for you.

As Echo said this is the best way. Word or warning though we have found users with v 2010 don't see the screentip.
