Link highlight – link style in further information

On a page, the reader is often provided with links to further information. These kind of links can be slightly more visible by using Link highlight formatting, which shows a short line under the first letter in the link text (see image below). Please note, that this type of link formatting cannot be used inside a text paragraph, as Link highlight formatting always shows the linked text in its own row.

Adding Link highlight in the Text paragraph component:

  1. Select the text to be linked.
  2. Click on "Styles", select "Link highlight"
  3. Add the relevant link and save.
