How to highlight anchors in page?

Deleted user July 31, 2017

I have a page with general information and want to link other pages to that main page. On that main page I have a table with on every row an anchor. On the other pages I created links to the anchors on the main page. The problem is that, when you click the link you are navigated to the anchor in the main page. But because all the anchors are so close to each oter, you can not clearly see which row in the table you nee.

Is there a way to highlight the anchor that you were navigated to?

I had exactly the same need. Big table, my link brings to the right place, but the needed text is somewhere in the center of the screen. Impossible for the user to know which row is the one to consider.

Sorry, wanted to post a comment, not an answer, and I don't see how to change it.

I have the same problem too and top 2 links are ppl having the same issues and there is no answers. Can someone actually looking into this "highlight anchor" feature please?

I'm looking for it too but unfortunately found this: 

Looks like the feature was closed due to lack of interest

Same here, I think this feature would be very useful indeed from a UX perspective.  I think it should be reconsidered.

I just asked here:  to reconsider the decision due to lack of interest. Maybe we will get a christmas gift:-)

Lack of interest? Why add anchors if I cannot find them?.. Memorize? Edit the page so I can see them?
