modals and hover stateNovember 29, 2018 at 10:23am
Is it a good idea to have a hover item inside a desktop modal?

It depends how valuable the information is - it's difficult to tell with no context. Personally, I'd only use this 'tooltip' pattern as a last resort or if there was a valid use case for it. If information is important enough enough to include in the UI, I wouldn't want to rely on an interaction for it to be seen. If it's not important and adds no value, then it probably shouldn't feature at all.
I don't know of anything specifically on this component combination - you might have to do some digging. I have no doubt that these components will be covered extensively individually though in different design system documentation. Check some of these out as a start https://github.com/alexpate/awesome-design-systems - it's a great resource. Some personal faves are Atlassian, Bulb, GOV UK, IBM

There are probably "official" docs for this, but I don't k now where they are. If you think about it this way: you have just hidden your main UI- the place you want your user to spend time, the place you have spent time designing and the place the user wants to go back to as soon as possible- I'd want to make the modal the fastest "in and out" experience possible- which, I think, means the least visual flair and distractions possible.
