What is a Bookmark
A bookmark is a means to mark a location or section of text to allow you to refer to it at a later date.
How is it Useful
- You can use the bookmarks to navigate to a particular area quickly
- You can create a cross reference to any piece of text that is bookmarked
- You can create a link anywhere within the document to the bookmarked text
- Cross Reference and Links will allow you to navigate to the area by just one click
- Highlight the piece of text you wish to create a bookmark for
- Click on Insert Tab and select Bookmark
NB: Do not include any paragraph marks as shown above as this will result in the formatting of the bookmarked text inserting wherever you refer to the bookmark.
- e.g. inserting a Cross reference to the bookmark in a paragraph with formatting of Font Calibri 11 where the bookmarked text is Arial 14 then when inserted this will reformat the whole paragraph
- Select the Insert Tab and Bookmark
- The Bookmark window will appear listing all bookmarks currently within the document.
- You can use the Go to option to see where this is in the document
- You can choose to remove bookmarks by selecting Delete.
When there are many bookmarks you can sort by the most appropriate order:
- Name – Alphabetical order
- Location – Where they appear in the document in order
