Adding Topic Links and Jumps

One of the keys to a good Help file is providing the reader with auxiliary information on specific topics by using links and jumps. With the click of a mouse, the reader can view additional reference materials on any number of related subjects.

Using Doc-To-Help Markup Language (D2HML) is the recommended way for creating topic links and jumps. An alternative method in Word is to use the Add Topic Link dialog box. The steps below demonstrate how to create several jumps, including pop-ups and jumps to separately defined windows using both methods.
