Linking documents is a feature of Opus 2 that is particularly helpful for establishing that one document, or a section of a document, is relevant to and associated with another document or transcript. Whenever text highlighted in yellow on documents, it is an indication that there is a hyperlink to a supporting document. Simply click the yellow text, and a Notes dialogue box will appear with a link.

Opus 2 allows users to create links to entire documents or to pages within a document, and also allows more specific linking to paragraphs and certain lines of text within documents.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Create hyperlinks in Opus 2by clicking and dragging over the desired text (or a margin box if there is no text), similar to creating a note. Write a note and apply tag(s) if desired, and click on the Link button to apply changes. 

  2. The User can link to the entire document, or to a specific passage of text.

Document-Level Links

  1. To link to an entire document or a page of a document, browse to the document in the Select A Document box by opening the relevant folder.
  2. Click on the picture icon to the left of the document name.
  3. Select the desired page number from the drop-down menu in the bottom left.                                                                                                                                                           

Paragraph/Text Level Links

  1. Navigate to the document containing the relevant text in the Select A Document dialogue box, and click on the hyperlinked document name. This will launch a preview of the document.
  2. Highlight the text within this document by dragging the cursor over the desired text, which will open another annotation box directly linked to the original note.
  3. Apply any preferred sharing settings to the Notes, then click on Create Link to apply the hyperlinks between the Notes, which will appear on the document as shown in the image below.
