How to create links to Files

Sketchanet allows you to upload files of various formats to your account which can then be accesed by the various linking options.  For example, a text link that reads 'View Today's Menu' would open up a new window displaying a PDF.  Or "View my CV" would automatically download a Word document to your clients hard drive.

To convert some text into a file link simply highlight the text you want to be the link and then click on the link icon Image in the text controls toolbar. This will open up the Link Dialogue.  Select the last tab of 'File Link'.  Click the 'Choose File/+' button.  Upload a file or select an existing file.


Images or cells can be linked in a similar fashion.
