Is there a way to create a relative (vs. absolute) link inside a Confluence doc?

In a doc created using either the legacy editor or the new editor, if I copy that document with internal links to a section heading, and I want the copy to have its internal links to link to sections in the doc copy (not the original doc), how do I specify that in the original?

For example:

Doc A has internal links to a section of the document. I copy Doc A and call it Doc B. I want all internal links in Doc B to point to Doc B, not Doc A. Is there a way to do this in Doc A, so when I copy it to Doc B, all internal links in Doc B jump to the current document and not Doc A (without changing every link in Doc B)?

Hi @Efleda Brophy

I've accomplished this by using the table of contents macro and using a consistent heading structure for each page. 

The table of contents macro will automatically create internal links to sections that use a heading format and you can even specify the levels of headings.

Let me know if that works for you!

Thanks, Jessica. Just viewed this reply.
