How to search within a page.


I'm developing a space and one of the pages has become too large to fit on one screen. It scrolls down approx three screen heights at present. With live search, if I look for an item that is lower on the page it only links to the page rather then the scrolling to the proper location. I hope I've explained the situation clearly.

Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?

A few easy possibilities

Insert a Table of Contents at the top of the page (it is  a standard selection on the Insert menu in the edit mode) and then set the text format as Heading1, 2 ... for each section - that gives you an automatic hyperlink TOC 

Insert an Anchor at the specific spot on the page which you can then link to elsewhere

Use the Expand macro to "declutter" the page
