I'm trying to link to a heading on another page, but the link only takes me to the top of the page.
I created the link in the Advanced tab of the link edit dialog. I typed the link as follows:
Spaces in the heading, none in the title.
When I link to the page, the link displayed in the address bar of my browser looks like this:
This is exactly the same link displayed by the Table of Contents macro for the same heading.
But it doesn't link down into the page, it only links to the top of the page. I have to use the TOC link or page down to the desired link.
What am I missing ?
That's what I did. Under 'Linking to a Heading', it said to enter pagename#headingname, no spaces in headingname. So I did that. But it doesn't seem to work.
Looks like I could create an anchor, instead of using the heading. But it does say that using the heading will work. Not sure what I've done wrong there.
Indeed it is weird. Since simply entering the two links in the browser should navigate you to the same place (since they are identical).
Can you try emptying browser cache or even better: try a completely different browser. Also be sure to try copy-paste the link from each source (TOC and link) and see how they act. I believe this might be a browser issue if the links are identical
Here's the link from the address bar for the link I created:
And here's the link when I click on the TOC in the target page
The leading path is also identical.
When I created the link, I typed:
RAPID SOC Environment#RAPIDEnvironmentSetup
Seems kinda weird...
Well, doesn't work in Chrome or IE. Cleared cache and restarted browser. No effect.
But then I saved off the link created by the TOC, and when I selected that, it only went to the top of the page as well. So somehow the reference to the internal heading is only working when selected directly from the TOC.
