I would like to add a link to a phone number (tel:+4412345678) in an interactive PDF. The Add URL function always creates a 'https://' automatically, so the tel:-link cannot work. From my point of view the automatic 'https://' is unnecessary?

Many thanks and best regards
Dominik

Use an Anchor instead of URL.

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012) Mac OS 10.12.6 || Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 11.7

Affinity Designer 1.10.5 | Affinity Photo 1.10.5 | Affinity Publisher 1.10.5 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

An anchor is there to link to a place within the document but not to an external site like mailto: or tel:, or have I missed something?

Hello, have you managed to figure it out? I am having the same issue. Thank you.

I can't afford to get the Adobe PDF program, so found an online utility that allows you to edit the hyperlinks and remove the https:// that Affinity seem to add to them (This should not happen really, as not all links are even https!!!) - tested and working for the tel: type links

Here's the web based utility: https://www.sejda.com/pdf-editor

Hi. I'd like to raise this issue again.

This is obviously something that multiple users would benefit from. And not, I would have thought, hard to implement.

Can anyone tell me if this is on the Publisher roadmap anywhere?

(PS Thanks @Neurojazz for the workaround. Though installing a whole new piece of software just to edit a link isn't my idea of fun (I'd rather not go the upload route)).

Update: Sejda (free desktop version) worked fine for me too.

The pity is for Affinity, after all the hard work done in/by Publisher, the "content creator" field is overwritten and comes up as Sejda. Some nice free advertising for them I guess.
