Hyperlinks don’t have to contain the URL address that has been pasted from the browser. Instead, any text can be converted into a hyperlink. Consider the following example, where an adviser wants to include a hyperlink to a Vanguard PDS. They could use the entire url:
Or, they could use text instead:
Both of these links will go to the same web address (try it now and see).
To convert normal text to a hyperlink, using Microsoft Word, do the following:
- Start typing the words that you want to hyperlink (e.g. Vanguard PDS);
- Select those words and right-click;
- Click Hyperlink;
- In the Address box (just above the OK button), paste the internet link (e.g. https://www.vanguardinvestments.com.au/retail/ret/investing-with-us/offer-documents.jsp;
- Click OK.
