Hyperlinking and cross-linking

Inserting clickable links to external files
  • When Appendix documents and other files, such as Excel sheets or PDF files, need to be referenced in the text, clickable hyperlinks can be created by selecting the text that needs to become clickable, and then right-clicking on the selection.
  • Choose Link to hyperlink the referenced file, and browse to select the target file.
  • The target file will automatically open after holding the Ctrl key and clicking on the link.
  • Once the Word document is finalized and converted to a PDF, the link will work as usual, without the need for holding the Ctrl key; see the tutorial “Finishing up: Exporting the MS Word document as a PDF file“.
Become an MS Word expert, and take off with a flying start.
