Hypertext link

How do I add a hypertext link into a page of text - so say I’m typing something like - 'You should check my website - here’s the link [hypertext link]. Of course I can type out etc., but that is not seen as hypertext when I compile to epub.

I can create a link in e.g., Word, and copy and paste - like this - John’s Web Site - which doesn’t work here [there should be some url stuff underlying that alias] - it worked in Scrivener but brings the Word format jungle with it and screws up my formatting. If I paste and match style, the hypertext content disappears.

Tried searching the Help manual - nothing relevant that I could find.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Scrivener calls them External Links.

Try Edit > Add Link…

This will bring up a dialogue box where you can enter a URL. You can also add links to files etc.
