What is a link?
You will already be familiar with links from your web browser. Web pages are full of them, you click on a link and it takes you to another page.

In j2e, clicking on a link in web view will go to that page. But if you are in edit mode, then it will simply open this dialogue, showing the address of the link. The 'open link' button will go to that page, if that is what you want.

Creating a link
You must be in edit mode. Select some text, or an object and click on the 'link' button on the tool panel.

Enter the address of the page you want to link to. This can be a full url, eg www.google.com, or just the simple name of one of your pages (in the same folder). 'browse' will show all your documents, so you may find the one you want to link to. Remember, you can link to anywhere on the web, not just j2e documents.

When you are happy with the address, click on 'ok' and save your document. You must do this, because going to the linked page removes your current document, and you would loose your changes.

Hypertext links
If you created your link from some stripe selected text, this is called a hypertext link, and the text will become underlined.

Opening in a new window
Check this option, and the linked page will open in a new window, leaving the current page available. If you use a tabbed browser, for example Firefox, then the link will open in a new tab. This is a good way to work.

Sound links
You can link to sound files, and even record directly in to j2e from this tab.

Browser next and previous buttons
When you click on a link on a j2e page, your browser will be directed to open that link via the address line. This means that it is easy to return to the page you came from, by using the back button on your browser.
