1.
Click in the page number area of the status bar to select the page number, type 2, and press Enter or Return to return to the contents page if necessary.

2.
On the contents page, click the Care link. Nothing happens. As you discovered just a few minutes ago, the Care link is not working.

3.
Scroll down the page thumbnails in the Pages tab and notice that the Care page is page 7 in the brochure. You'll use this information to set the link correctly.

4.
Choose Tools > Advanced Editing > Show Advanced Editing Toolbar to display the Advanced Editing toolbar.

5.
Select the Link tool (). Notice that all the links on the page are outlined in black when the Link tool is active.

6.
Move the pointer over the broken Care link. The link is selected when red handles appear on the link box. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) in the link box, and choose Properties from the context menu.

Red handles indicate that the link is selected.

7.
Click the Actions tab in the Link Properties dialog box to set the correct destination for the link.

11.
Select the Hand tool () and test your link. When you are finished, click the Previous View button () to return to the contents page.

Earlier in this lesson, you noticed that the Creativity link incorrectly took you to the Care page. Now you'll correct the Creativity link.

12.
Select the Link tool, and move the pointer over the Creativity link. When the red handles appear on the link box, double-click in the link box to open the Link Properties dialog box.

13.
Click the Actions tab to correct the destination for the broken link.

The Actions window in the Link Properties dialog box shows that the link is to page 7, which is the Care page. You'll edit the link so that it goes to the Creativity page, page 6 in the brochure.
