Creating anchors
Overview
The anchors are used to define specific points in a help page.
Then, you will be able to position directly on this point in the help page from a link for example.
The anchors are very useful in long help pages. They allow the reader to easily move within the page.
An anchor can be created:
  • on a word or on a group of words.
  • on an image.
To easily view an anchor in the help editor of WINDEV, the text corresponding to the anchor is highlighted in light green.
