The Hyperlink function allows you to assign a hyperlink or an URL to any object of the drawing.
The hyperlink can launch any installed processing software by assigning to the hyperlink the corresponding path of a specific file saved in our local disk. For example, if we assign to the Hyperlink the directory path of a SketchUp file, Dibac CAD will launch SketchUp and will open that file.
Besides opening any stored file in our hard drive, the hyperlink function can also open the web browser if we associate a website URL.
To associate a hyperlink to an object you need to follow these steps:
Click on the Hyperlink icon under the Standard toolbar or in the “Utilities” dropdown menu.
Type or paste the hyperlink. If you want to associate a file, make sure you insert the file path correctly. For example, C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\DIBAC_CAD\Projectfile.dwg
Select the object in the drawing (block, text, line, wall, etc…)
Once the hyperlink is associated to the object, a “blocked hand” symbol will appear when you hover the pointer in selection mode over the object. This is means that the object has a hyperlink but its blocked.
To launch it you must press and hold the key while clicking on the object.
This option can be activated when the associated file is saved in the same folder as the project file of Dibac CAD. This is very useful when sharing the project with someone else and adjoining all the associated files in the same folder.
IMPORTANT: Every time you click on a hyperlink, Dibac CAD will search for it in the specified file path. If the file is moved to another folder, Dibac CAD won´t find it.
