Create and Edit Bookmarks

Learn how to create and edit bookmarks in RoboHelp

Bookmarks are named locations in a document. Use bookmarks to create incremental links within a topic. You can link to a bookmark from within the topic itself; from any other topic in your project; or from an index entry, TOC entry, or image map. The Bookmark icon appears at the bookmarked location. To view bookmarks in Contents Panel, click the sign next to a topic, and it will show all the bookmarks defined within that topic. They are also useful to mark a position that you want to return to later, especially with long topics. 

Insert a bookmark

To insert a bookmark, follow these steps:

  1. Place the cursor at the appropriate location or select the required text in a topic.

  2. In the standard toolbar, click the Insert Bookmark  icon. The Bookmark dialog box opens.

  3. In the ID field, type a name for your bookmark, without spaces, using any combination of letters and numbers. You can see the existing bookmarks under Bookmarks in this topic.

  4. Click Insert.

  5. Click Save.

    After you save the topic, bookmark icons appear nested under the individual topics listed in the Contents panel and at the appropriate location in the topic.

  6. You can also show/hide the bookmark icons in topics with settings in the menu: View > Show > Bookmarks.


You can also drag-and-drop an existing bookmark to a new location in the topic. 

Rename a bookmark

You can rename any of the bookmarks that you have inserted in the topic. To do this:
