Can a standalone artifact be a hyperlink?

I have a document that is the standard Glossary of Terms for the company. This contains terms used within the copmpany and is a useful reference to use when viewing many of the model diagrams.

It would be useful to have a link showing on the process diagram - can I make an artifact that is the link and anyone viewing the diagram could click on it and open the Glossary of Terms document.

I can insert a hyperlink in a Formatted Text box and can have it on the diagram but clicking on it only takes me into the Formatted Text maintenance .... I want to click on it and open the document.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

Try to replace you Formatted text box to Image. It has behavior options, where you can add hyperlink.


Dear David,

We apologize for the delay in response. The answer provided by Stanislav is appropriate. There is another option and that is to use extended attributes type Link File or URL.

We share a link to our user guide that may be useful

Thanks Juan .... but have tried to add a link as an attribute but there is nowhere I can find to do this (maybe, because I am using the free version of the modeler)
