Cannot Link to Anchor in same topic

Unread postby Dale Aceron » Wed Oct 10, 2018 6:00 pm

I have searched the help files and also this forum, but cannot find how to link to an Anchor in the same Topic.
In the Help Files, it notes this:

"To quickly create a link to an anchor in the current or another topic just create the link with Drag & Drop and then double-click on the link to select the target anchor in the dialog."

But I still cannot do it. Any help would be so much appreciated!
Thanks!

Hi Dale,

To link to an anchor in the current topic, first create a normal link to the topic. Then double-click on the link to open its edit dialog and you will then be able to select the anchor in the drop-down list next to the topic ID target.

I did what you said, however, when I open the Link Editor, the Anchor does not show up.
Please see attached images.

Hi Dale,

The anchor list is the dropdown directly to the right of the Target: field, which currently shows (Top). If you click there to open the dropdown list you will be able to select the anchor there.
