There is `org-link-minor-mode' that helps you have Org links in any
kind of the mode. I think you need to install it from Melpa.

In the case of LaTeX I would use GNU Hyperbole

With Hyperbole V8, let us say you wish to have a link link:


Then you have to decide which function to handle the NAME-OF-FILE. The
function can be stored in .emacs file

Then you would do following:

(defil any-name-of-function "<doc:" ">" ".*" 'my-function)

Let us say your function is to open file within Emacs:

(defun my-function (file)
  (let ((file (string-trim file))) ;; I would string trim to avoid any spaces 
    (find-file file)))

Then the button like this is opening ~/tmp or any file there.

<doc: ~/tmp>

But to open a file Hyperbole already knows how to do it as this
is already implicit link:


Which kind of files do you try to open?

Are those files to be opened with external viewer?
