Accessing the navigation feature, from the Navigation toolbar.
Simply type or paste the destination address into the field and press the Enter key. For a local/network directory or file, the target will open as the active tabbed document within Altium Designer's main design window. For a web-based target page, the target URL will open either as a tabbed document inside Altium Designer, or in an external browser, depending on the state of the option to Open internet links in external Web browser. This option can be found on the System - View page of the Preferences dialog.
- Destination addresses for directories and folders on local, or network storage mediums, take the form: file:///RootDirectory:/Path/Document.
- Destination addresses for documents on the internet take the standard URL form: http://WebAddress. You don't need to enter the full URL with
http:// prefix. Entering the short-form address for a website will also work, for example
live.altium.com. However, the http:// prefix is required if you want to open the URL in an external Web browser.
- When opening a new target address within the software, the directory/document will open in the existing tabbed document view used by the previously targeted address.
- The field in which you enter the destination address is actually a drop-down list which provides a history of all destination addresses (valid and invalid) which have been previously entered. This history list is not persistent across design sessions. It is cleared upon exiting the software.
