How to define hyperlinks to your files (Step-by-step guide)


Hello Folks. To improve the usefulness of your documentation, you can provide hyperlinks to supplemental files that are located outside your documentation. You can display these documents or make them available for download. In this video, we are going to show you how to define hyperlinks to your files. We will quickly create a hyperlink by selecting some text and then click the ‘Insert/Update Hyperlink’ button found on the ‘Insert’ ribbon tab in the ‘Links’ group. Additional ways of creating a hyperlink are shown in another video. Using the “Hyperlink” button on the ‘Insert’ ribbon tab, in the ‘Links’ group, you can access the hyperlink dialog. Click ‘File’ in the menu along the left-hand side of the ‘Edit hyperlink’ window. Select the file to link to by clicking the browse button to the far right of the ‘File path’ text box and navigate to the document. After you select it, the document name and path are displayed. In order for readers to access the file, you must place it in the correct folder when you deploy your documentation: If you plan to place the file within a sub-folder of your documentation, click the check box for ‘Relative path’. If the file will not be placed within a sub-folder, leave this box blank. However, the full absolute file path is then required. Click OK in the lower right-hand corner of the window to save the new hyperlink and close the window. To remove the hyperlink, click the ‘Clear link’ button in the lower left-hand corner of the window and then click ‘Yes’ from the confirmation window that pops up to clear the highlighted link. HelpNDoc makes it easy for you to create hyperlinks to relative topics, web pages, create e-mail messages, and files. The steps for defining these types of hyperlinks are outlined in another video.
