how to create a link inside rich text

Is there a way to show create an href to another page inside of rich text? i.e. I have the following text:


Don't have an account? It's easy to sign up for your FREE 7 day trial - Click here to sign up today!


I want the words "Click here to sign up" to be a link to another page and to show up like they would be an href (underlined and a different color).


Thanks for your help!

Easy. Draw an image map over the "Click here to sign up" and link it to the desired screen.

Two problems with this solution:


1. My text is in a dynamic panel set to vertical alignment. Every time I try to create an image map, it moves from where I drew it to the next vertical spot.


2. You didn't explain how to get the hyperlinked text to be underlined in a different color.

1 --> draw the image map out of the dynamic panel and then move it above the text using the arrow keys (tip: shift+arrow moves the element faster)


2 --> doble-click on the rich text, then select (in the canvas, not in the properties panel) with the cursor the piece of text you want to change. Finally change the style properties using the main tool bar.

Wow you have to follow your directions exactly to work. You literally have to use the cursor to move the image map. I had to move a little bit at a time because sometimes it would select multiple items in the outline view rather than move the image map. Mouse won't work because then it moves the image map into a dynamic panel.


So it worked but it's kinda a pain.

FYI. The next update has that thing already fixed.
