We have seen that, when you move the pointer over text within the Pad++ outliner, the text changes color to red; clicking on the text causes Pad++ to pan and zoom until that text fills the screen horizontally and appears near the top of the screen vertically. The text is acting as a hyperlink to a location on the Pad++ surface.

(Similarly, in the Pad++ HTML browser, some words are shown in blue. They are 'hotwords' - positioning the pointer over the word causes it to change color to red. When you click on the word, the appropriate document is placed on the Pad++ surface.)

In Pad++, this concept is generalised. Any object an be turned into a hyperlink.
