SAN notes - We would like to give users reviewing pieces with clickable links in Annotation Viewer, the ability to click links from within Annotation Viewer.

Also text links for hyperlinks should be clickable within the annotation note itself please

Yes - correct, Eric. 


So to be clear, the desire here is that you upload a PDF that includes existing links in them already configured.  You want those links to work when clicked?  I would expect that clicking the link should open a new browser window or at least a new tab in the current window and take you to the location.  

I would like to have the ability to click a hyperlink within a document from within the annotation viewer.  Currently users have to open the file in the web browser to test if hyperlinks are linking to intended location, which adds step and navigation when reviewing materials

Similar to how web links can be clickable in PDFs, we would like them to be clickable in Annotation Viewer.  Business case is when we route SEO pages that has text that links back to our website, our compliance partners need to be able to see where the text links.  Since we require the page to go through without markups/clean, we would like the text to be clickable.  


Are you asking that the annotations feature allows you to create an Annotations that is a type "Link" where the person entering the annotations is entering a URL into the document OR are you asking that hyperlinks that are already in the document or image are clickable and would open the webpage?
