If you’re working with a long document, you can make things easier for the reader to navigate through your document by adding hyperlinks that will take them to a different part of the document.

For example, you might tell a reader that they can find a copy of your project plan on page 18 of the document.  Instead of leaving them to find page 18 on their own, you can turn it into a hyperlink for them to click on.

Creating hyperlinks to different parts of your document is just like creating a content page at the beginning of your document.

You can take a look at the tutorial on creating a content page by clicking on the link below.
