There are three types of hyperlinks that may be inserted into a SmartDraw file. They are:
- A hyperlink to a website
- A hyperlink to a separate SmartDraw File
- A hyperlink to another page within a multi-page SmartDraw file
To add a Hyperlink, you'll select a shape or text and click on Hyperlink in the Insert tab.
This dialog will look different if you have a multi-page SmartDraw document or if you're just dealing with a single page diagram.
Linking to a File or Website of a Single Page Diagram
If you click on Hyperlink from a single page diagram, your dialog will look like this.
To add a hyperlink to a website, type or copy-paste the URL of the web page.
To add a hyperlink to a file, click on "Browse" and find a SmartDraw file from your list of saved diagrams.
Use the scroll bar in the My Files section to scroll through and then select your desired file. Click Select.
Hyperlinking to Another Page in a Multi-Page Diagram
Begin by creating a multi-page SmartDraw file.
To add a hyperlink to a shape in page one (1) that will navigate to page two (2), first select your desired shape from page one's Work Area. In this example, I will select the 'Research Market' shape.
Select Hyperlink from the Insert tab.
Because you are linking to a page in your current file, you can ignore the top section of the Add Hyperlink dialog window. Choose your desired page from the drop down menu in the Page in Current File section of the Add Hyperlink dialog box. Click OK.
A hyperlink icon will appear in your selected shape, and when selected it will take you to the linked page within your file.
