Hyperlinks for Affinity Publisher

Recommended Posts

I have just completed my first Men's Shed newsletter, Mail and Web links all worked in the PDF distributed, I did not expect them to work within Affinity Publisher. Links on master page also exported.

Thanks to the Affinity Team for making links work, 

yes url links and maybe even text box links sort of work in master pages but linking from a graphic to another page just does not work

Just downloaded 239. So far in just a few tests The issues I had been having have all been taken care of. Master page go to works. Table of contents link to anchor works. Target areas are in the correct place.:)

Our public new beta signup Affinity Publisher beta download store page (MacOS & Windows) is still serving 1.7.0.238 but at the top of these forums there is a new build #249 with some hyperlink fixes and other issues addressed.

Affinity Publisher 1.7.0.249 for Windows

Affinity Publisher 1.7.0.249 for Mac

(Perhaps you have this already.)

Once we have a bit more confidence in each beta build we change the version on that new sign up page

This confused me when I first read it. I should have said I just downloaded 249 NOT 239

So are hyperlinks functional now in Publisher?

They have been functional for quite some time now, since beta 238 on February 8. They continue to improve.

Whether they have the function you are looking for will depend on exactly what you want them to do.

Thanks Walt.

 

So I just tested the functionality.

Works absolutely perfectly! Well done Serif/Affinity!

I have been away from Publisher for a few months and had not tried it lately.

 

So if this is working so well in Publisher, which is still a Beta, why not roll it out to Designer and Photo?

It's extremely useful.

That's something only Serif can answer. They have a vision of what tools belong in which products.

I will point out, though, that Publisher has both Designer and Photo Personas, and if one owns Publisher and either of the other products one will be able to create a project in Publisher and (we expect) seemlessly switch to the Designer or Photo Personas to use functions that are not possible in Publisher. (This is not available yet, but Serif has said it would be enabled after the Photo and Designer 1.7 betas have ended.)

What that means is that anyone who wants hyperlinks in Designer or Photo would simply need to purchase Publisher, and they'd have them via the Persona capability, along with all the other Publisher functionality :)

I would like to add the wish to add also hyperlinks to images in an pfd-file. Like buttons. ...

Just use the graphic of a button to link to wherever you want.

So you can use hyperlinks on images! It just seems counterintuitive to have to go to the Text menu to do it.

Yes, this is not the first time this has been mentioned, and I definitely agree.

Thanks a lot. I could not find it. Great if APublisher adds this to a more logical place in the navigation, like right button.....i’ve Just learned something.

You don't have to use the Text menu. You could instead use the Hyperlinks panel.

Thanks all! Isue for this hyperlink part solved. I would also wish to add an title to a hyperlink, so when hovering, You see an text. This would make it easier for an viewer. Or do iI ask to much from Affinity?

I am ignorant as to whether PDF generally supports something like the HTML title attribute, but I think I can at least say that it is not possible in Publisher (I welcome someone to prove me wrong).
