IMPORTANT: To test the links, publish to PDF first and test on the PDF. The links do not work inside the project editor
To begin, you need to first decide where you want the link to go to. In this case, I want to create a link that will go to the header container with the words "Learn More About Storytelling".
Note: The links go to containers and not anchor text.
Click on the container to activate it. You will know that it is activated when you see the green outline border, plus the toolbar. Now click on the bookmark icon.
This popup will appear. Here you are creating a bookmark. Write any text in the field that you can remember to associate to this link. Bookmarks are names for internal links. We will use the bookmark to make the connection.
Note: Your bookmark is ONLY for you. It does not show up anywhere in the ebook.
In this case, I am going to call my bookmark "my-link-1". Now click on the "OK" button. This will confirm the creation of your bookmark.
Next, you need to figure out where you want to have the origin, or starting point, for your link. In this case, I want to add the link to the white space of this page. See below:
Now you need to go to the sidebar and click on the Text icon (circle with the A symbol inside). There you will see in the second set of options in the right of the second row the 'Link' element. Drag that element to where you want to have your link.
Here is my link.
Now we need to connect this link to the header container that we created a bookmark for in the beginning. Click on the container to activate it. Remember, here you want to see the green border and the toolbar. From the toolbar select the pencil icon. A popup will appear giving you a number of link options.
Now click on 'Bookmark'. Next click on 'Select Bookmark'. Here you will see a list of all the bookmarks that you have created. In this case we want to select 'my-link-1". Now save your project. Your link connection has been established.
To check to see if you have selected the correct bookmark go to the chosen container and click on it. As you can see now in the toolbar there is added text letting me know that "my-link-1" is linking to this container.
Publish your project to PDF and click on your link. Congratulations, you have successfully created your first internal link.
