How to link to audio, video, websites, and pages

With Scriptation, it's easy to create a link to another page within your script, as well as any outside content like a website, cloud file, audio clip, or reference video.

NOTE: Hyperlinks currently do not transfer from draft to draft. Look for this functionality to be added in a future update.

To get started creating a link, select the script text you'd like to link to. Then on the pop up bar, tap the Create Link icon.

NOTE: If the text already has an annotation associated with it, you need to tap and hold to bring up the menu that includes the ability to Create Link. A quick tap will open the pop-up menu to edit annotations already in place.

NOTE for Mac Users: After highlighting the desired text, right click, and select Create Link.

TIP: If you're not able to select text, the PDF file has been Flattened.

In the pop-up window that appears the default option is Link to Page. Within this tab, you can select any page within your script to create a link to.

When you are complete, tap Done.

Within that same pop-up window, there is also a tab to Link to Website.

After selecting that, the keyboard will automatically load. From there you can type (or copy/paste) a link to any website, cloud file, YouTube video, etc.

NOTE: Given the technical specifications of the PDF file format, it's not possible to add a video into the PDF itself - only hyperlink to it.

When are you complete, tap Done.

Creating an Annotation

With your link created, now you just need to create an Annotation so you know that the link is there.

You can use any type of Annotation! Perhaps a Custom Stamp next to the linked text, or as shown in the example below, a rectangle annotation around the linked text.
