Links

Websites usually contain links to other webpages within the same website or external links to other websites.
Launchpad enables you to create both internal and external links.



The Link button in red

There are 3 types of links:

  1. Page Link - A Link between different Artboards
  2. Anchor Links - A Link within the same Artboard
  3. External Links - A Link to an external website

In Launchpad each Artboard represents a Webpage.
You can create links between different Artboards (Webpages).

  1. Select the Layer which will trigger the navigation event. Usually this will be a button.
  2. Click the Link button in the Launchpad panel.

Many times you would want to create links to external websites that aren’t a part of your website.
A great example are links to social media websites - Facebook, Twitter, etc..
