Table of Contents links stopped working

Hi! I used to be able to click on sections in the Table of Contents macro at the top of a page, which would jump me down to the correct part farther down the page. They've been working just fine until very recently -- ALL my table of contents are now not jumping.

For the record, when I click, the URL in the address bar DOES add the #section still -- just nothing happens. Please help! We send deep links to colleagues often and so really rely on this functionality. Thank you!

Thanks, Michael! I double-checked, and unfortunately even headings without special characters aren't working. But this bug might be the cause of why THOSE headings aren't working. I just don't know why the others would be affected to (I did the test/trial suggested on the page you linked to).

Feel free to raise a Support case and we can look into this further for you.
