How to insert a link to an email address (mailto)?

Post by rotary systems » Thu Nov 19, 2015 5:43 pm

Can someone please help me figure out how to create a link in a PDF that when someone clicks it, it places the email address in the To line of Outlook or whatever email client the user has.

Hello rotary systems,

Thank you for the post. Please see this article on how to create links in PDF: ... a-document

When using the add web link action, use the flag "mailto:" then the email address.

Code: Select all

I hope this helps!
