    You can link to items you Place into Illustrator, but you can't apply a hyperlink. Products from Illustrator are intended for Print, but if you use it in the WEB with SVG, then you'd need to apply the hyperlink in your WEB page separate from the SVG, I believe.

    Alex,
    Here's what I do. In Illustrator group your object and name it. for example make a box and make text for the box (example "cnn.com"). Take the text line and the path object you created (the box) and group the two items. In the ai layers pallet open the <group> you just created and name it "hyperlink1" or any thing else you prefer(no spaces). Save your SVG. Open your saved SVG with notepad, wordpad or any text editor. Perform a find on "hyperlink1". You should find the group you created in ai. Just before the <g id="hyperlink1" add . From the <g id="hyperlink1" scroll down until ou find the closing tag </g>. After this tag insert and your link is complete. Save and test your SVG link. Your cursor will change to a finger when you rollover the grouped link. Depending on how you intend on using your linked SVGs be careful of your relative or absolute paths. Have fun.

    Alex,
    I had to edit the first post and replace some of the special characters '>' with "(". Hope this dosn't confuse it.
