Hour 18. Linking Your Movie to the Web > Task: Create a Text Hyperlink

Task: Create a Text Hyperlink

In this task you'll use an automatic feature to associate a hyperlink with a block of text. Here are the steps:

1.
Create a block of text using any font you like—just make it big enough to read.

2.
With the text block selected, access the Properties panel. First make sure the text type is Static (not Dynamic or Input Text), and then type a legitimate URL into the URL link field (next to the chain-link icon). In Figure 18.4, http://www.phillipkerman.com is used. The text becomes hypertext, or hyperlinked text.

Figure 18.4. You can make a selected block of text a hyperlink by specifying an URL link through the Properties panel.


3.
Now select Publish Preview. One thing to notice about the behavior of this hyperlink text is that the new page replaces the browser window. As you'll see in the “Targeting Windows” section later this hour, it's possible to change this target window to “_blank” to see the linked page appear in a new window instead.
