Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating internal and external links, part of InDesign CS6: EPUB Kindle and iPad.
Let's talk about adding links after the fact in your EPUB.…Of course, it's very easy to add links in InDesign.…You simply do it with the Hyperlinks Panel which I have here.…And in this History of Art book that we have been working with, there is already a link…in most of the versions that we have been working with.…There is a hyperlink that leads you to an external URL on Wikipedia.…You can double-click it and see it right there.…And for this one, I have also added a cross reference link which you might find quite a bit in your books.…
I have a cross reference over here. Let's zoom in.…It says this paragraph has a cross reference to the chapter called Painting in Spain.…And if I click here, it becomes highlighted I can jump to Painting in Spain, and you see…the little icon indicating that this is a cross reference.…And the cross reference is different from a hyperlink, because I could change this to…painting in and around Spain and then update the cross reference.…
And when I go back to the source, you can see that's been updated.…
