How Links Work

Illustrator manages links through the Attributes panel:

You can turn any object into a link just by:

  1. selecting it
  2. choosing Rectangle in the Attributes panel
  3. 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.
