Have You Tried: Add Hyperlinks to DWG Files

Lee Ambrosius

This month we delivered another Have You Tried that we think you’ll really like. Have you ever thought it would be great if you could create a link from a plumbing fixture in a floor plan or from a gear in a mechanical design to a product specification page on a manufacturer’s website? Hyperlinks can help you with that and more.

In this Have You Tried, you’ll learn how to use hyperlinks to link objects in your drawing to a website, specification list, spreadsheet, and more. You can also use hyperlinks to link from one drawing to a view in another drawing.

You can also learn more in the “Being Safe with Hyperlinks” section that has practical information to protect you against cyberattacks and malicious behavior on the Internet when using AutoCAD hyperlinks.

Learn more about Hyperlinks with step-by-step examples in the Have You Tried: Add Hyperlinks to DWG Files topic.
