Illustrator manages links through the Attributes panel:
You can turn any object into a link just by:
- selecting it
- choosing Rectangle in the Attributes panel
- entering the destination URL
Two Types of Links
There are two types of content you can link to:
- links to other websites
- links to pages on your website
Links to other websites should include the full web address, including http:// or https://.
Links to pages on your site should begin with a / and include everything after the name of your site:
Don’t Use Text as a Link
It is possible to use text as a link, but it only works when the user clicks on the solid part of a letter.
For example, clicking in the middle of an O does not activate the link.
For this reason, it’s best to draw a rectangle with 0% opacity as the link.
