How to Insert Bookmarks and QuickMarks in Your WordPerfect Document

By

I love using bookmarks in long documents. If you’re working on a long document and need to return to specific locations in the document, WordPerfect's Bookmark tool accomplishes that for you. Rather than having to scroll through pages and pages of your document, you can quickly return to a bookmarked or a QuickMark location.

I use bookmarks in conjunction with a Table of Contents to provide a round-trip experience. That way, when a reader, or even me, the writer, need to read a specific section, they can click on the hyperlink provided in the Table of Contents. Then, once they finish reading that section, they can click on a bookmark and return to the Table of Contents.

I use QuickMarks to quickly return to a certain place when I return to a document.

WordPerfect has no naming restrictions on bookmarks.
