Text Link Style Action

13th of February, 2013

Type of Action: Item Action (to use it, select an item and go to Item>Actions to choose the Action from the list).

What the Action can do: This Action lets you do the following:
  • Lets you set up the behavior of HTML link styles with specified colors and underlines for each link state.
Note: To set up the links styles for your page (or site) we recommend you use the Links panel at the foot of the Inspector's Paintbrush tab. If you set up the links styles for your Master page(s) this will be applied site wide. The Text Link Style Action lets you set different color and underline behaviour for the links contained within individual HTML items, as styles chosen here will overwrite the styles set in the Links panel for any HTML item this Action is a applied to (or is a child item of).

To use the Action, select an HTML item which contains text hyperlinks, go to Item>Actions and choose Text Link Style. With the item selected on the page, you can see the options in the Actions palette (note that the Actions palette varies between Express and Pro - the screenshot below is how it looks in Express):


  • Normal: This controls the link color and underline behavior of the link text when it is in its normal state (ie, when it displays on the page without being moused over and without that link being visited previously). Click and hold on the Color button to see the list of color in your site or choose Other… to choose a new color.
  • Visited: This controls the link color and underline behavior of the link text when it has been used previously (in that browsing session). Click and hold on the Color button to see the list of colors in your site or choose Other… to choose a new color.
  • Hover: This controls the link color and underline behavior of the link text when it is in its "hover" or "MouseOver" state. Click and hold on the Color button to see the list of colors in your site or choose Other… to choose a new color.
  • Active: This controls the link color and underline behavior of the link text when you have the mouse button held down on mouseover (so that the link is being clicked on). Click and hold on the Color button to see the list of colors in your site or choose Other… to choose a new color.
