I'm using Adobe Illustrator 2022, OS12.1
I know I can add URL links within Adobe, using Attributes, but does anyone know if I can do the same with an email link.
If I had the option to click on an image or text to then take me to an already opened email message to a certain person.
Would be great to have several individual client email links on my artwork/document, so I don't need to keep opening email app and selecting name etc. 1 button or text could do it for me.
This is hopefully do-able in illustrator alone, don't want to use Acrobat or InDesign for this.
Hopefully someone somewhere has an answer.
Illy doesn't have a hyperlink tool. If you want something more functional than just typing your hyperlink into the doc you are going to have to use Acrobat or ID.
Just goes to highlight how much I don't know, I thought email links were just a subset of hyperlinks and all you had to do was add mailto: in front of the email...
Copy link to clipboard
Links are HTML code (web pages). Use Dreamweaver or some other code editor to create web pages with linked images.
Example of an image wrapped by a mailto:link. For this to work, the device must have an email client installed like Outlook or Windows Mail.
<a href="mailto:email@example.com"><img src="YOUR-IMAGE.jpg"></a>
Hope that helps.
