This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Anchors
I want to link to an anchor or heading inside a page, but that page has no Name but an pageID. What is the syntax for linking to that anchor?

Just copy the name of the page and enter it in the advanced section of the link dialog like so:
It should work even when there are weird characters in the name. I'll add a note to the page to make this clearer.
I tried it, but it didn't work. The title of my page is "This/That" and it is in the space "Galaxy". I tried both:
The result was "Page not found!"
I thought the slash in the tame is the problem, so I tried the whole thing on another page that did have a name --> the same problem!!
At the end I found out, the problem is the auto-converter of that textbox in the advanced page. Like many other auto-conversions in Confluence the mechanism only works, if your really type the page name just when you first click in the textbox. Pasting the text or having a wrong value then editing it, or even completely removing it and then re-typing the correct text don't work, you should really type without editing:
Then it works.
Alternatively you can use:
