Is there a Back to Top option for articles?

Hi everyone,

I have published a long article that makes use of a Table of Contents to quickly scroll to headings. Is there something I can insert that will act like a Back to Top button to bring readers immediately back to the top of the article?

@Casey HarrisThere is no direct way to achieve this, but there is a hack that you can use,

Hack 1 - Using Anchor Macro,

  • Drop an an Anchor Macro on the top of the page (you can name it TOP etc)
  • And at bottom (or any desired space) create link to this Anchor

Hi @DPK_J , thanks for sharing that hack - but I do not see the Anchor Macro from the Insert menu. Should I be looking elsewhere?

We are using the Cloud product and we have the new editor.

Oh! Anchor Macro is temporarily made unavailable in New Editing Experience.

But I think you can check this page -

And look into New and updated features > Linkable headings section I think this can help you.


I tried it out, but the linked heading does not appear to work for a page you are already on (it did not visibly refresh the page or bring me to the top of the page - which I hoped it would have).

I suppose I have to wait for the Anchor Macro to return. Thanks for your help.
