Creating hyperlinks made easy
 
We will henceforth use the term insert a hyperlink rather than create a hyperlink to describe this process, since the hyperlink is inserted into the existing text. The test database  will again serve as our example.

Method 1 - Use the Insert hyperlink window
Let's create a link from node C to node B:
 
 
 
Method 2 - Copy⁄Paste node as hyperlink
We are going to insert an underlined hyperlink from node A to the Root node using this method. Navigate to A's article and insert some blank lines, then:
 
 
This method is excellent when the hyperlink and its target are widely separated, or when you need to paste hyperlinks to the same target node in several articles. For further details see Copying and pasting hyperlinks.
 
 
Method 3 - Insert a hyperlink to a node in the Bookmarks, History or Search Results pane
 
The History pane is our example here, but the method described here will work equally well with the search results or bookmarks pane. Please first click the History pane button below the article to open the History pane. If it only contains the current node, select a few more nodes until the History list builds up, making sure node A is included since this exercise involves creating a hyperlink from the Root node to node A. Here's how to do it:
 
 
This method is particularly useful for creating reverse hyperlinks. For further details see Using the Insert menu.
 
Method 1 is the most universal, since it gives you the largest number of options. Also, method 1 allows you to create links to other targets, such as external files, Web sites, phone numbers, email addresses, etc.
 
For further details please see Using the Insert⁄edit hyperlink window.
 
For further comparisons between these methods you can look at: Which method to use?.
 
The Hyperlinks section of this manual contains additional methods for inserting hyperlinks, particularly multiple hyperlinks, as well as handy hints and tips.
 
Now let's brighten up the article by adding some images.
 

 
Notes:
  1. Double-clicking is the default action for activating (following) hyperlinks.
  2. If you have set TreePad to activate hyperlinks by single-clicking, this will set it off, so right-click on it instead.
