This tool found on the gCADPlus drop down menu, converts Windows text (but not text drawn with a CAD font) to a URL. Converting text in a gCADPlus drawing such that clicking on it links to a web address (URL) can have some value within a drawing but we do not encourage the use of this techniques when communication with clients in PDF form because web browsers and PDF readers give unreliable results.

Tip: For best results, the URL should contain the full path e.g. in order to link to our web site from text in a drawing we would type http://www/plus.designcad.com.au not www.plus.designcad.com.au.

 URL links This movie shows the value of using a URL link in a title block in layout space.
