1.3.7 Special Topic: Hyperlinks and Active Text

The Mathematica front end provides a variety of ways to search for particular words or text in Mathematica notebooks. But particularly when large documents or collections of documents are involved, it is often convenient to insert hyperlinks which immediately take you to a specific point in a notebook.

  • Hyperlinks are usually indicated by words or phrases that are underlined, and are often in a different color. Clicking on a hyperlink immediately takes you to wherever the hyperlink points.
  • Hyperlinks in notebooks work very much like the buttons discussed in the previous section. And once again, all aspects of hyperlinks are programmable.
    Indeed, it is possible to set up active text in notebooks that performs almost any kind of action.
