Chapter 7. Links > Linking to the Internet

Linking to the Internet

As mentioned earlier in this chapter, links can connect to locations outside Acrobat, as far as the Internet can reach. If the text of your PDF document contains URLs that you would like to act as links to the Internet, you can convert them to Web links.

To link to a Web site:

1.
Open the document in which you want to create the link, and go to the page where the link will be.

2.
Choose the Link tool (L) from the Editing toolbar.

3.
Drag a marquee around the area you want to define as a link.

When you release the mouse button, the Link Properties dialog box appears.

4.
From the Type pop-up menu, choose World Wide Web Link (Figure 7.5).

Figure 7.5. Link to the Web by choosing World Wide Web Link in the Link Properties dialog box.


5.
Click the Edit URL button.

The Edit URL dialog box opens.

6.
In the text box, type the URL of the Web site to which you want to direct the link (Figure 7.6) and click OK.

Figure 7.6. Enter a URL for the link.


7.
Back in the Link Properties dialog box, click the Set Link button to set this action.
