This command provides an alternative method by which to follow the link URL defined for a placed Hyperlink object.
This command is accessed from the Schematic Editor by right-clicking over a placed Hyperlink object and choosing the Hyperlink » Open <DefinedURL> command from the context menu.
After launching the command, the target URL will be opened either within the software, or in an external browser, in accordance with your defined preference.
- An alternative way to open the defined URL is to simply hover the cursor over the hyperlink. After a short delay, a pop-up with the URL will appear. Click this to open the URL. The pop-up containing the URL is a feature of the software's Design Insight System. Specifically, it is obtained by enabling the Hyperlink Insight aspect of the system. This is done on the System - Design Insight page of the Preferences dialog. As with other elements of the system, you can configure the launch style for the pop-up - Mouse Hover and/or Alt+Double Click.
- While the target of a hyperlink might have been specified with or without the full URL - including the
http:// prefix - if this prefix is not present, you will not be able to open the URL in an external Web browser.
