Word 2003: Bookmarks

Word 2003: Bookmarks

Bookmarks are a great tool, particularly when working with long documents. Each bookmark identifies a selection of text that you can quickly jump to or use for a future reference.

Plus, you can add cross-references to bookmarks. This means you can refer to a bookmark on page 1 in a document from another page in the document – thus, a cross-reference.

Adding a Bookmark

  1. Select the text to be bookmarked
  3. Choose Insert: Bookmark… from the Menu bar

    3.       Enter a Bookmark Name (no spaces and MUST start with a letter)

    4.       Click Add

Changing a Bookmark

Just because you added a bookmark doesn’t mean you can see it on your document – at least not until you modify your Word Options so Word knows it’s okay to show them.

So, when editing or changing bookmarks, it’s a good idea to display them first, and then make your changes.

  1. Choose Tools: Options from the Menu bar

    4.       Click OK

  3. Select the bookmark you want to delete
