This article describes how to create links in your document to help a Viewer of your document jump to different pages, ie. navigate with ease and link to outside content. You can create links by selecting text or another object on your page and then going to Anything > Page Design > Link.
- Have a Displayr document open.
The general steps to insert a link to your document are:
- Select the object or text that you would like to add the link to.
- Select the desired option from the Anything > Page Design > Link menu.
Web Page - only the HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP URLs are allowed. You can specify if you'd like to Open this link in a new tab.
Page in this Document - links to a particular page in your current Displayr document such as a Table of Contents (see note below) or Home page. You can also specify if you'd like to Open this link in a new tab.
Back - goes backward in your browser history.
Forward - goes forward in your browser history.
Previous Page - goes to the previous page in your document.
Next Page - goes to the next page in your document.
Remove Link - removes a selected link from your document.
- If selecting Web Page or Page in this Document, specify what the URL or page title to link to, check the Open this link in a new tab box to open the link in a new tab and then click OK.
- OPTIONAL: To see if there is a link already on an object, select the object and go to the Anything > Page Design > Link menu to see if there is an option highlighted in the menu.
If outputs on your page are interactive, you will not be able to create a link on top of them. This most notably includes visuals created from the Visualizations menu. Also navigation links to pages, Forward, Previous, are not supported in other types of exports such as PDF and PPT.
