Add a URL link to your Titleblock – easy way to advertise!

No doubt you issue many PDF files to consultants, Clients, Builders and the like. Why not add a URL link to your titleblock, so that anyone receiving your PDF files can jump directly to your webpage?


Its as simple as adding a parameter of type:URL into your titleblock.


To make it even easier for you, I have created a Generic Annotation family with a URL parameter inside it. Simply load this family into your titleblock, then link the parameter from it to a parameter in your titleblock (see image).
Here is the download link:


Now, when anyone opens this PDF, they can jump directly to your webpage.
The URLs worked fine for me using CutePDF and Adobe Reader, but Foxit Reader seemed to have an issue parsing the link correctly.

This is interesting, I’ve finally found the time to try it out!

I have stumbled across this post on several occasions while trying to find a similar way of linking 3D images to a room tag so a contractor might be able to see my pretty client images and, more importantly, the design intent. Any thoughts on how this might be done?

The picture is too pixelated to read. And can’t find the download files anywhere.
