How to Add Links to PDFs in SharePoint

Muhimbi’s PDF Editor for SharePoint lets you add links to a PDF directly in SharePoint Online or on-premises. You can link to any website or the page of a PDF document to help users quickly access additional information.

Step 1: Opening a PDF File

Edit PDFs in SharePoint

Select a PDF from the SharePoint library and right-click on the three dots menu. Then click Edit with PSPDFKit Editor.

Step 2: Adding a Link to a PDF

Click the arrow next to the image icon to open a dropdown menu, and choose the Link option.

Select the area in the document where you want to add a link, and hold the left mouse button to move the link annotation around.

The Link Settings window will pop up asking you to enter a website URL or a page in the document.

Step 3: Editing a Link Annotation in a PDF

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.
