The Link feature of the Editor is a powerful option that lets you add clickable hyperlinks or e-mail addresses to your documents, as well as control the way they look and work.
To insert a link to a URL address, anchor, or an e-mail, first highlight the text you wish to make into a link and then press the button on the toolbar or use the Ctrl+L keyboard shortcut. A popup window called "Link" will appear. If no text is selected, the link URL or e-mail address will appear in the document as is. The Link dialog window that will open lets you choose the link type and configuration options pertaining to your choice.
Link Type: URL
URL is the default link type and will create a link to a web page.
You will notice that the URL ( the default link type that lets you add a website address to your document) and Protocol have been automatically inserted for you.
The Target tab is only available for the URL link type. It sets the target of your link (specifies in what kind of a window a link will appear). By default the target of the URL is not set and the link will open in the same browser window or tab as the document.
If you choose to open the link in a pop-up window, you can configure further options that control the appearance of the pop-up. Note, however, that the users' browser settings might override these options and make the pop-up window appear in a standard new browser tab or window instead.
The Browse Server button is only available for the URL link type. It allows you to send your own resources to the File Manager. For more information on how to upload a file, check out File Manager located under Web Page Management.
The Advanced tab lets you configure additional link options. It is meant for advanced users with knowledge of HTML and CSS and gives nearly endless possibilities as far as the presentation of the link is concerned.
Link Type: E-mail
The Editor makes it easy to insert clickable e-mail addresses to your documents and even add a subject and body to the e-mail message. To add a hyperlinked e-mail address to your document, select E-mail from the Link Type drop-down list.
The Link Info tab allows you to configure the recipient and the message content.
An anchor is a position on the page to which you would like your visitors to be redirected. To insert an anchor, place your cursor and click before the text or section you want the anchor to refer to and press the button on the toolbar. A popup window called "Anchor Properties" will appear. Enter its name in the Anchor Name text box. Once you click OK, an anchor icon will appear in the document.
Link Type: Link to anchor in the text
In order to link to an anchor previously set in the document, first highlight the text you wish to link from, press the button on the toolbar or use the Ctrl+L keyboard shortcut, select Link to anchor in the text from the Link Type drop-down list, and select the anchor by anchor name.
The Link Info tab contains the following options that make selecting an anchor an easy task:
Removing a link
Removing a link is just as easy as adding it; when the mouse cursor is placed on a link, the button on the toolbar becomes active. Pressing the button removes the link and leaves plain text. You can also right click on the link and select the Unlink option.
