Chapter 6. Making PDFs Easy to Navigate > 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 you want to place the link.

2.
Choose the Link tool from the Advanced Editing toolbar.

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

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

4.
Click the Open a Web Page radio button in the Create Link dialog box (Figure 6.27).

Figure 6.27. Link to the Web by choosing the Open a Web Page button in the Create Link dialog box.


5.
Click the Next button and the Edit URL dialog box appears. In the Address field, type the URL of the Web site to which you want to link (Figure 6.28) and click OK.
