A clickable link is a link, many times an html link, aka hyperlink, that is incorporated inside a pdf, email, word document, or similar, that enables someone to open the desired link in another browser window. It is often stated that you are then ‘redirected’ to another website.
This blog post will tell you how to add a clickable link to a pdf that you create in Canva, the design tool for designers as well as non designers. If you have not used Canva and would like to know more, please refer to, Design Your Own Graphics Using Canva.
You can also add links to Canva presentations.
Clickable Links In Canva
Creating links in Canva is so easy you will ask yourself why you never took advantage of the feature before now.
You can create links that link from text or from an image.
When you are creating a pdf document you may be writing a description, the name of something, a title of a blog post, or something something similar that you would like your audience to click to view. You will need to create the clickable link in order for them to actually click and open the page.
Similar to a text link but you are now going to make an image, graphic, or photo, clickable.
You may tell your audience to click on the image to see more. Or to click on the infographic to see more about a topic.
Creating Links in Canva

Remove A Link
Link to an image, graphic, photo, or video

Link From an Image

Clickable link in a presentation
You may want to incorporate links in your presentations to quickly refer to various websites and information.
A wonderful software tools that allows you to make a pdf editable is PDF Escape. You can take a pdf that you have created, upload, and make the spaces ‘typeable’ to another user. This is great if you want someone to fill something out and send it back to you via email rather than having someone print the document, write, then scan and send back.
Link to links within designs
Linking links to other links within a Canva design is not yet possible. Cross your fingers this is in the works!
