Achors prefixing "id-"

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Anchors

Hi guys,

the anchors page name seem to be prefixed with and "id-".

For exampe: confluence.atlassian.com/anchors#testpage-bottomanchor did not work,
but this did: confluence.atlassian.com/anchors#id-testpage-bottomanchor

Is this known?

We're using the cloud version of confluence.

Are you trying to enter a link in a Confluence page to anchor on the same page? I ask because Confluence handles the translation between the link you entered (using the Advance tab of Links) and how it must be displayed for it to work on the page.
