Document bookmarks

Mike McBride

Bookmarks are invisible placeholders that allow you to move easily to specified points in a large document.

Help-hint.png Tip
Some other wordprocessors have bookmarks as part of their interface. If you are familiar with their use, you will find that KWord functions in a similar manner.

It should be noted that bookmarks are attached to the text near the cursor, not the page location. If the text moves forward or backward in the document (as text is inserted or deleted respectively), the bookmark moves with the text.

Creating a new bookmark

Creating a bookark is simple.

Place the cursor where you want the bookmark to be inserted. Select Insert->Bookmark... from the menubar.

A small dialog box will appear.

Type a short description of the bookmark location (i.e. Chapter 1, Appendix, Abstract, etc). This description will identify the bookmark for you.

Click OK to create the bookmark.

Click Cancel to return to your document without creating a bookmark.

Jump to a previously created bookmark

To jump to a previously created bookmark, select Tools->Select Bookmark... from the menubar.

A small dialog will appear. Double click on the desired bookmark with the left mouse button. You will immediately be taken to the location in the document that is attached to that bookmark.

Alternatively, you can click once on the desired bookmark with the left mouse button, and then click on OK. This will function the same as double clicking on the bookmark.

Rename a bookmark

To rename a bookmark, select Tools->Select Bookmark... from the menubar.

A small dialog will appear. Click on the desired bookmark with the left mouse button. Now click Rename Bookmark. A small dialog will appear. Enter the new name for your bookmark. Click OK. The bookmark is renamed immediately.

Delete a bookmark

To delete a bookmark, select Tools->Select Bookmark... from the menubar.

A small dialog will appear. Click on the desired bookmark with the left mouse button.

Dialog-warning.png Warning
Be sure you have selected the correct bookmark from the list before proceeding. KWord does not ask for confirmation before deleting the selected bookmark.

Now click Delete Bookmark. The bookmark is deleted immediately.
