Links Into Snippets

Unread postby dreesor » Tue Sep 11, 2018 10:02 pm


I have a page of definitions that is comprised of 125 linked snippets which I edit in a Repository. In my manual, I need to create links to anchors located in those snippets on that page of definitions, but I don't know how to create links to linked snippets. I can create links that work from that definitions page to the referring page, but not into the linked snippets.

Can you please help?

Hi Dreesore,

You can link to an anchor in a linked snippet as long as you know the name of the anchor. In the link dialog (double-click on it in the editor to redisplay) just type in the anchor name in the anchor dropdown instead of selecting it (it's an editable field).
