Add a Link to Your PDF and More
Do you need to annotate a PDF? Maybe you want to add a link to PDF, or highlight text for others to see. We will teach you how to annotate PDF files using Adobe Acrobat DC. We will also show you how to add comments and signatures, and even password protect your document! Let’s get started.
The first thing you need to do is open your PDF in Adobe Acrobat DC. To do this, simply click on the “Open File” button in the main menu. A new window will pop up, allowing you to select the PDF you wish to annotate. Once you have selected your file, click “Open” and it will be loaded into Adobe Acrobat DC.
Now that your PDF is open, we can start annotating! The first thing you might want to do is add a link. Links are great for adding extra information or resources that your readers can follow up on. To add a link, simply click on the “Add Link” icon in the toolbar (it looks like a chain). A new window will pop up asking you to select the text you want to turn into a link. Once you have selected your text, click “OK” and then enter the URL you want to link to in the “Link” field. Now, when someone clicks on that text, they will be taken to the URL you specified!
If you want to highlight text instead of adding a link, that’s easy too. Just click on the “Highlight Text” icon in the toolbar (it looks like a pencil). Then, use your mouse to select the text you want to highlight. A yellow highlight will appear over the selected text. You can also add comments to highlighted text by clicking on the “Add Comment” icon in the toolbar (it looks like a speech bubble).
