I am working on migrating a GUI from GUIDE to AppDesigner. In GUIDE, I could format the tooltip text by supplying an HTML string. This doesn't appear to work in App Designer. Is there any way to format the tooltip text in App Designer? In particular, I'm looking to bold certain words and add line breaks to the tooltip.

You can add tooltips to any component, by using the Inspector tab that is displayed to the right in App Designer from MATLAB R2018b. Formatting using HTML is not a supported feature as of now.
Hope this clarifies your question!

Just got to this point myself after seeing Yair's example for GUIDE controls -- another step backwards in abilities; in R2020b it still doesn' work; I've not yet updated past.
You CAN embed the newline character to get the line breaks but HTML still didn't work. I don't suppose there's any chance that TeX might; haven't yet taken a flyer...since @Harsha Priya Daggubati didn't mention as workaround, one presumes that's likely not supported, either.
