eBook Tips – Hyperlinks in a Document

Ever wonder how to create internal links in Microsoft Word for an eBook?  For example, this is often used in eBooks in a table of contents.  Clicking on a chapter name automatically links to the chapter target page.  Here are some simple steps for internal document linking if you are using Microsoft Word.

Linking to another page in the same document:

1)     Place the cursor on the target page.  For this example, the first page was used and called “home”.

2)     Use the Insert menu options above and select Bookmark.

3)     Select the “Name” option and type in a name.  Click add.  (Reference figure below)

4)  Highlight the text you want to click on.  For this example, we’ll use Home.  In Microsoft Word this will work.  In WordPress, a new tab in your Internet browser will open.

5) In the Insert Menu, select “Hyperlink”.

5) Select the “Place in this document” option.

6) On the right side of the screen, note “Bookmarks” and the name created – “Home” – in #4.  Select “ok”.  (Reference figure below)

7) Test the link by holding the CTRL button and clicking on Home.

    Hi would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely
    different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot
    quicker then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a honest price?
    Thanks, I appreciate it!
