In order to be a clickable link, the object types has to be a Hyperlink object. You can't just associate a link to a symbol (please submit a wish for this functionality).


You can associate an existing symbol with a link and right click on any part of the symbol to open the link.


You can make a Hyperlink object with an associated into a "Red" symbol by clicking the Convert to Plugin Object check box on the insertion options. That way it can be stored as a Resource in the Resource Manager by still insert as a Hyperlink.


If you set the Hyperlink to have no Label, then the symbol itself becomes the link, but there is no real indication in the drawing that it is clickable.
