Linking to a Webpage

You can add a hyperlink that opens a webpage in your default web browser.

To add hypertext that opens a webpage:


Select the text that you want to turn into a hyperlink.

If you use text that starts with “www” or “http,” the text automatically becomes a
hyperlink. To turn off this feature, choose Numbers > Preferences, click Auto-Correction,
and deselect “Automatically detect email and web addresses.” This setting is computer
specific, so if the spreadsheet is opened on a computer with a different setting, that
computer’s setting is used instead.


Click Inspector in the toolbar, click the Hyperlink inspector button, and then select

“Enable as a hyperlink.”


Choose Webpage from the Link To pop-up menu.


Type the webpage’s address in the URL field.

The Hyperlink inspector button

Type the URL that you

You can also quickly create a hyperlink using the Insert menu. Place an insertion point
somewhere in your spreadsheet, and then choose Insert > Hyperlink > Webpage.
A link is added to your spreadsheet and the Hyperlink inspector opens. Type the
webpage’s address in the URL field.
