A common use for anchors is a Frequenty Asked Questions page: the page starts with a list of questions, and clicking on one of these takes you down to the part of the page containing the answer.

Editing an anchor

In edit mode each anchor component shows as an anchor bar, as shown in figure 2.

Click OK to save the name of the anchor. Click Cancel to return to the page without changing the name of the anchor.

Linking to an anchor

You can link to an anchor using the Anchors tab of the link window.
