New in Drawboard PDF PRO: Hyperlinks

Rachelle McGowan on

Propel your productivity to a whole new level with our latest updates.


Drawboard PDF PRO hyperlinks allow you to now treat your PDFs as a living documents. Faster navigating, more annotating.

Hyperlinks can be placed on pictures, text, shapes or whitespace and can direct to weblinks, pages or even exact areas within pages. You can even style hyperlinks to match your document with the option to change the selection border type, color and thickness. This new feature also gives you the option to configure what your click action does, for example, you can direct to the link destination, or induce an edit menu in context.

Start now by clicking the ‘insert’ tab of the slide-out panel on the right hand side of the document view. For quick and regular use, you can also add this feature to your favorites bar.
