Any text in the resource content may turned into an anchor link. An anchor link will jump the page down to a section on the same page. This can be useful for loger pages that may have an introductory index at the top of the page. Here is an example of an anchor link that jumps down to the remove link section of this page.
Before you can link to parts of a page you must indicate where the 'jumps' can be made to. This is done by creating one or more anchor points on the page.
- Decide where you want an anchor point and place the cursor there.
- Click the Insert/edit anchor button indicated by a small icon of an anchor.
- Enter a unique name for the anchor and click Insert. This name should be meaningful as the anchor names are visible in many browsers in the status bar area. An anchor icon will display in the page next to the cursor.
- Repeat this process for other anchor points you require on the page.

- Click on the 'Insert' button at the bottom to complete the anchor link.
- Place the cursor anywhere on the link.
- Click on the small icon of a broken chain in the second row of the tools menu called 'Unlink'.
