6.10. Bookmarks

Bookmarks in Word are the digital equivalent of folding down the page or underlining a paragraph that you want to refer to later. You can use bookmarks in long documents as you write them, perhaps to mark places that need more work later. They're also useful in Word documents you get from others, to mark places that you have questions about or pages that you're going to use most often. And because you give each digital bookmark a name, it's easy to jump to specific spots in a long (or even short) document.

6.10.1. Adding Bookmarks

Select the word, phrase or paragraph that you want to bookmark, or just click in the text at the appropriate spot. Choose Insert→Bookmark (or press Shift--F5), and assign your bookmark a name in the "Bookmark name" box (see Figure 6-18). When creating a name, adhere to these parameters: Be descriptive and specific; use underlines instead of spaces (Word, in its ornery way, doesn't permit spaces in bookmark names); use numbers, if you like, but not as the first character; and do not exceed 40 characters.
