Not able to link to headers

Since the new editor has been added, the anchor macro has been gone. I already read in someone else's post that the anchor is (temporarily) unavailable. 

However, I am also not able to link to headers on the same page or other pages with the usual "Page name#header name" or "#header name" commands in the "link" option. The link option now only offers me the option to link to another page.

My question is, has the linking option also been limited or am I missing something? Am I still able to link to headers somehow?

You're correct. Anchors aren't supported yet in the new editor, however we will be adding support to link headers in the coming weeks. I hope that helps.

Hi Avinoam, thank you for your answer. I think that solves it. 

Hi Avinoam,

Has the support for linking headers been implemented since this post? I am trying to create a link to a header on the same page, but it's not working.

@Avinoam Hi I was wondering if this has been fixed yet in the latest update.  I was trying to do this and wasn't sure how to do it. Thanks.

@Avinoam is there an ETA on this? The feature coming "in the coming weeks" is still not working in April 2020

Like # people like this

It is still not working for me, unless I am doing something incorrectly.
