A while ago, we added a new text stencil to Pidoco that makes editing text much easier than before. With the new text stencil, you can insert links to other pages or external URLs directly into your text. Today, I want to show you how…
Step 1: Insert a text element
Let’s start off by dragging a text stencil from the palette to the canvas. Once you have placed the stencil, a toolbar will appear directly above the text, allowing you to format the text. You can immediately start typing or pasting copied text. When you are done, click outside the text stencil
Hint: The width of the text stencil will adapt while you type. If necessary, you can resize it manually.
Step 2: Link (a part of) the text
Linking to another page: Once you have entered your text, select the text or text elements, that should become the link, with your mouse. In the toolbar, click on the arrow next to the field “Insert link”. A dropdown menu will open and let you select the page of your prototype you wish to link to. The linked text will be underlined.
Linking to external content: To link text to an external website, select the text to be linked and type the URL of the website into the field “Insert link” in the toolbar.
Hint: To remove a link, select the linked text and click on the “Remove link” icon right next to the “Insert link” field.
