I want to do something very simple in my document - place a link to a heading on the same page.
However, every piece of Confluence documentation takes me round in circles.
Typically it it states - Choose Link > Advanced
(where is that?)
Or another document states that I simply place the cursor over the heading to create an anchor. This does not happen.
Are these old pieces of information?
I'm sorry but for a document management program, I find the documentation for Confluence available to be appalling (this is not the first time I've been pulling my hair out trying to work out how to do something).
Of the two solutions you already mentioned in your question, the first one Link > Advanced looks something like this:
I might be repeating the steps from the help document. But, I hope the image would help you understand better.
The second solution, place the cursor over the heading to create an anchor - this applies to the new editor experience. Refer to the Jump to headings with anchor links section in this page. You see a GIF added in the section and that is exactly how you link text to anchors in the new editor.
Hope my answer was clear! If not, let me know.
Thanks for your response. Unfortunately, I still do not know how to get to this "Link > Advanced" setting
I'm in a document and I select "Link" (or press Ctrl K)
The options it gives me are to paste a link or otherwise a list of recently viewed documents.
There isn't an "Advanced" option.
How do you get those options when inserting a link?
In that case, you should probably contact your administrator to see how is your Insert link configured.
Let me also look into other reasons why you do not see the Advanced option and get back to you.
Meanwhile, can you try pasting the link in this format - Page_Link#Page_Title-Anchor_Name, to see if it works?
I have the same issue. I am using Confluence Cloud Standard Version and I cannot see the "Advanced" option either.
I have tried:
"Meanwhile, can you try pasting the link in this format - Page_Link#Page_Title-Anchor_Name, to see if it works?"
When I click the link it stays in the same page without moving to the anchor.
