When the Link Settings window is open, additional settings will appear under the main toolbar. Choose a border color, the opacity percentage, and the thickness of the line. The link annotation can be a different color for better visibility.

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

Finally, clickSave to save the changes to your PDF document.
