Linking to a specific part of a page - anchor

You can link to a specific part of a page, and even a specific part of a different page, by creating an Anchor Link.

Adding an Anchor Link

  1.  Select the target object to set as the anchor.
  2. Click the PROPERTIES tab in the PageCloud palette.
  3. In the “ID” field, enter a simple name for the anchor.  

Note - this name is case sensitive.  


Create the Anchor button from text - Activate the Anchor

Select some text, then click the link icon in the text editing frame,
Ensure the link type is set to URL and in the field, enter the # symbol followed by the name of the anchor (no spaces).  Make sure the protocol field is set to “other”,
when you “View Live” you can now click the text and navigate to the anchor point.


 

Create the Anchor button from an object - Activate the Anchor

Select an object, then click the link tab in the PageCloud palette
click the ENABLE LINK box,
Ensure the Link Type is set to WEB, and in the URL field, remove the HTTP or HTTPS and enter the # symbol followed by the name of the anchor (no spaces).  
When you “View Live” you can now click the object and navigate to the anchor point


Creating an anchor directing to another page

Follow the same processes as outlined above, however when setting the link itself, put the page name (where the anchor exists) infront of the #ANCHORID. For example: contact#ANCHORID if you're directing your users to that anchor on your page titled "contact".
