Title: Hyperlinks inside of text
Post by: Pexim SLani on November 30, 2020, 11:32:44 am
I'm an old Scribus user and yesterday I ran into the problem I can not solve.

I have single Text frame (with 8 rows of text) and I'm trying to insert 5 different hyperlinks.


What I've tried is, to select a text and then to apply hyperlink, but there is no option for doing that  :(

All I can do is to add Hyperlink to a whole text frame.

I searched YouTube for help, and I found out that InDesign has such an option while selecting a word or text, right click and there is an option "Hyperlink".

Can we expect such an option in future version of Scribus?

I'm just returning to review Scribus, searching through the forum for topics related to my planned workflow for producing interactive documents (web site target). 
I do see your point that hyperlinks cannot be embedded in textframe. But then it is text not html.
My immediate thought for a workaround is to use layers to overlay over text frame (or replace textframe) a render frame containing svg object with hyperlinks as discussed here: (

BoxySVG is a handy tool (on Ubuntu) for creating SVG objects but there is also Inkscape.
