Working with bookmarks

A bookmark allows you to find a place in a text so that you can find it more quickly.

Creating a bookmark

If going to a bookmark involves selecting a passage of text, select that text. If going to a bookmark just involves moving the insertion point, place the insertion point in the relevant position.

From the Insert tab, go to Links and click the Bookmark button, or use the [Ctrl][Shift][F5] keyboard shortcut.

Enter the name of the bookmark in the Bookmark name field.

A bookmark name can contain up to 50 characters. It must start with a letter and must not contain any spaces.

Click Add.

To display the bookmarks in a document, check the Show bookmarks box in the Word Options dialogue box (File tab - Options - Advanced - Show document content). If the bookmark is assigned to an item in the text, the bookmarked item appears in brackets; if it is assigned to a location, the bookmark appears as an l-beam. The brackets and l-beams do not appear in printed documents.

Deleting a bookmark

From the Insert tab, go to the Links group and click Bookmark, or use the [Ctrl][Shift][F5] keyboard shortcut.

In the Bookmark name box, select the bookmark to delete.

Click Delete then Close in the Bookmark dialogue box.

Using a bookmark

From the Insert tab, go to the Links group and click Bookmark, or use the [Ctrl][Shift][F5] keyboard shortcut.

In Sort by, you can sort the bookmark list by location or name, by activating the Location or Name option.
