When the Link Settings window is open, additional settings will show up in the right and left top corner, just under the main toolbar. Choose a border color, the opacity percentage, and the thickness of the line. The link annotation can be marked in a different color for better visibility.

You can move the link annotation anywhere on that page. In the top right corner, you can click on the Recycle bin icon to delete the link from your PDF. You can also add a comment to the link by clicking on the Note icon next to the Recycle bin.

Finally, click on the Save button to save the changes to your PDF document.
