Use a Hyperlink to Create an Email Message

Typically you use hyperlinks in a drawing to associate graphical objects with related documents. In some cases, however, it might be useful to insert a hyperlink that creates an email message when the hyperlink is activated.

For example, consider a design project with several drafters responsible for updating different components of a drawing. As drafters add new components to the drawing, they can associate hyperlinks that include their email addresses with the components. This provides a convenient way to identify who created various drawing components and to send that person an email message with any design-related issues.
