As a Free or PRO user, your hyperlinks will be active when your visual is published, and available to others when shared.
To add a link, first click to select the text box or object on your canvas that you would like to function as a hyperlink.
Click the link icon in the top tool bar. A pop-up will appear for you to insert the URL. Remember to include http:// for the hyperlink to work. Only external URLs will function; intranet URLs and links to other areas of the same visual will not function. If you want to set up an email link, you can use the "mailto:" command, for example: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org, excluding http://.
As a PRO user you can download PDFs - the hyperlinks on your PDFs can only be active when attached to text due to the high-resolution of the PDF output. PNGs are static files and cannot have active hyperlinks.
You can always add a link to Images or Text Boxes if you intend to Publish it to view online only. This option is the only one available to Free users if you wish to have active links.
The example pictured above shows the icon of a trophy being used to host a hyperlink. This link will function if you choose Share and Publish, then view the saved visual online.
