Before you begin

You can insert links to URLS, E-mails, Telephone, SMS, Unsubscribe, and file in text, buttons, icons, images, and other content types. The views look a little different for inserting links on each content type, but these general fields apply:

Once you've highlighted the text you want to insert a link in or selected a link property from a content block, the Insert link window displays:

File Manager

You can link out to a file from text. Consider your use case when deciding if you should use a content block to directly embed an image or video in the message or if you want to link out. You could also do both to accommodate for desktop and mobile views by hiding one content block on desktop and showing it on mobile, and vice versa.
