Insert Local Links

Direct your users to another location in a topic by inserting a local link to an element in the same topic. For example, you can use local links to refer to a step element in a task topic or a section element in a concept topic.
  1. Open a topic and place your cursor where you want to insert a link.
  2. In the toolbar, click the Insert Link icon.
  3. In the Link dialog, from the Link To drop-down menu, select An Element in this file (Local link).
  4. Click Select Element.
  5. Select the element that you want to link to by doing the following:
    1. In the Create/Edit Link dialog, click an element.
    2. From the list that appears, select the element.
    3. If prompted about the element ID, click OK and Save.
      Tip: Heretto CCMS generates ID values automatically, but you can enter your own values. The ID values must be unique. Assigning customized values may boost consistency in your documentation.
    4. Click the Insert Content button.
You inserted a local link to the element in the same topic.
