How to create page anchor (H3)

Option 1: (Recommended)

Use text editor formatting options to create page anchors

Step 1: Select the text, click “insert/edit link” (Ctrl+K)

screenshot Insert hyper link

Step 2: Add target anchor ID (e.g. #all-videos)

Screenshot insert hyper link step 2

Step 3: select the target link text, click “insert” –> “Anchor”

Screenshot insert anchor

Step 4: insert “Anchor” ID without #


Option 2: 

This approach requires basic HTML skills.

  • Use this sample code to create anchor links <a href=”#section1″>Go to Section 1</a> – <h3 id=”section1″>Section 1</h3>

Option 3: (not recommended)

Create a shareable link that goes directly to specific highlighted text on a page. The disadvantage to this approach is, if the content of the page have been updated, the shared link pointing to that particular will no longer work.

  • Open your guide in standard view (not in preview mode)
  • Use  “Copy link to highlight” feature to collect URL of the heading or target location
  • Insert link on your guide wherever required
