Showing Balloons During Tours

You can set Google Earth to show descriptive balloons each time a tour pauses at a placemark. This setting is useful if you want to tour a set of placemarks that have particularly interesting descriptions. It is also helpful when you create movies in Google Earth.

To use this setting:
  1. Windows/Linux: Click Tools > Options. Mac: Click Google Earth > Preferences.
  2. Click on the Touring tab.
  3. In the Fly-To/Tour Settings area, adjust the Tour Pause slider in seconds, from 0 to 60, or enter any number in seconds.
  4. Check Show balloon when tour is paused.
