Anchor macro does not work for me. We are using the enterprise version of Confluence.

Anchor macro does not seem to be working for me . We are using the server version of confluence. 

Is there an alternative available? I do know about the link macro where in the advanced feature can be chosen and the  headings (sub sections of a page or of a different page) can be linked. 

I am trying to put in a Use case in a Confluence page which has several alternate flows as well as various steps. 

In the flow of the  Use case , there is a Step as - Go back to the Step 30 of the basic flow or go to Step 20 of Alternate flow . 

I want that when the user clicks on Step 30 - confluence takes me to the step 30 of the basic flow(sort of a hyper link). I have tried to achieve this through the Anchor macro but it doesn't seem to be working for me.

Also, if you're still getting challenges, I recommend posting screenshots of your configuration so we can assess it. 


We are using the 6.3.14 Version of confluence. I did use the exact same steps which you have mentioned above . The difference is i have larger records. I can try to create some sample and paste screenshots.
