1. Set bookmarks in Word.

In our small example, we have created 2 sections of text.

The goal should be that we can click on a section of text, or a word, and then land directly in the 2nd text section.

First, we set a text marker in the target section.

For this purpose we should mark the headline or the beginning of the section, and then go to the tab: “Paste” on “Bookmark” and give our bookmark a unique, and unique (if we later want to use more than one bookmark) name.

In the previous step, we have set our goal, where we want to land later.

Next, we now only have to specify which text components should refer to this goal.

To do this, mark the word next, or the text section that represents the starting point, in the tab: “Paste” on “Link” and in the following dialog window select: “Link to: Current document“.

There, the desired text marker out, and confirm your choice with “OK“.
