A small addendum...

The Validate will also do things like checking for the existence of the
gotolink marker specified.

You'll get a nastygram from Frame if you put in the gotolink prior to
defining the newlink marker.

Sue,





If you create a new link and give it the identifier "checklist" (as in your
"what I am doing" procedure) then you should use that same ID as the
destination when you insert the "Jump to Named Destination"
hypertext marker.? Perhaps it was inadvertent, but your example has
different 'names' and I would not expect it to work, either in FM or PDF.?
Also note that the names are case-sensitive, so "checklist" and "CheckList"
are different destination names.? You will still see the hand pointer (as
you hover over the hypertext marker), but because the names don't match, the
jump can't find the target to move the insertion point.




The "validate" function only really verifies that you have the syntax
correct for the marker you're adding, not that the command will work as
expected.? After all, you could enter the "goto" commands first, then define
the destinations as the second step...





You can test a link by temporarily locking the document via Save as View
Only or the escape sequence Esc F l k (four separate key
presses: escape, Capital-F, lowercase-L lowercase-K ; this toggles the
locked or "view-only" state of the document) or just hold the control and
alt keys together as you hover over the hypertext marker.



I hope this helps.

I
have been reading and following the help files and the User Guide for days
now.? I cannot successfully and consistently make a simple link within the
same document. 



It looks like you need to save as
"View Only" in order to activate the link.? I have done that and also saved
regular and I cannot get the link to jump from point A to point B


or in other words to go from the "new link" to the "specified destination".



Here is what I am doing.



1.?? Select the word or phrase that is the destination 

2.??; Go to Special>Hypertext 

3.?? In the Command box, select "Specify Named Destination" 

4.?? In the Syntax box it says "newlink"???and then next to that I type in
the word to be found? "checklist"? all lower case 

5.?? The checkbox for "Validate Command upon Insertion is checked 

6.?? Click on "New Hypertext Marker"



then I go to the starting point 



1.?? Select the word or phrase that will be marked as the starting point 

2.?? Go to Special>Hypertext 

3.?? In the Command box, select "Jump to Named Destination" 

4.?? In the Syntax box it says "gotolink" and then next to that I type in
the word that was used at the destination point "server"? all lowercase 

5.?? The checkbox for "Validate Command upon Insertion is checked 

6.?? Click on "New Hypertext Marker"



So, now from here is apparently where I get lost. 



If I save as "view only", I will get the hand pointer and it looks like it
will work. 



However, if I click on it, nothing happens. 



If I make a PDF, nothing happens. 



Please, what am I missing? 



Thanks,
