Links within a page

I have been wondering - - how does one go about setting up links within a page - - much like you have your FAQ’s and Tips page set up in Help. You have a single line set up as a link, and when clicked - - you simply drop down the page to the information. And then you can return to the top of the page for more links.

Is there a way to set that up in Scrivener?

Hi Bob,

I could be wrong, but I believe the FAQ et al is set up with links that take you to a new page rather than within a single page document. Regardless, usually the way this is done is with HTML. Following is a brief HTML example, which would take you back up to the top of a page:

GoTo Target - Hyperlink
&lta href="#top">Top of Page

Target Insert - Destination - Bookmark
&lta name=“top”>

I don’t believe you can use HTML language within Scrivener. The link feature Cmd-L creates a new link on a new page, allows you to link to a note, a research file, etc. But again, I could be wrong about Scrivener’s capacity.

Don’t know if this is of any help.

I just went into Scrivener, then into Help, then into Reference Guide, then into Useful Tips and FAQ - - and it is this page I was referring to. Single links dropping down the same page. However - - if this cannot be done in Scrivener then I’ll just work with and around this minor detail. I won’t drive myself crazy anymore - - trying to figure out if there is a way to do it. It is still a great app.

Thanks for HTML info.

Ah, I see where you are now. The document and the Tips & FAQ you’re referring to are contained in an .html file so the links are coded in a similar fashion to the example. Scrivener generates .rtfd files. So I don’t believe you can create the type of links you desire. But I don’t write code so others may know more.


No, you can’t link to specific places in pages in Scrivener, only to other documents.

All the best,

Hey - - thanks you two ! ! Now I can save any threatened brain cells from still trying to figure this one out on my own. This just goes to show you how much I understand computers. HeH

Thanks for the info ! !
