Hi. How the #*&@ do I get bookmarks to work in FP2002? I know how to insert them - that part is easy. But when I try to create the hyperlink I cannot see the bookmarks I have just created on the webpage. It seems to be a different setup to the earlier version of FP. Is there some trick I'm missing? I have tried FP help but that is next to useless. Thanks all.

Can you explain what you mean by "bookmarks" on the web page in FP 2002?

The reason why I am asking, is because I have never heard about this before, & am just wondering what they are & how they work :)

Hi. Bookmarks are generally used to navigate around longer web pages, or to move from one web page to a particular location in another. If you are familiar with bookmarks/hyperlinks in Word documents, they work pretty much the same way in FP. In page view in FP, put the cursor at the bookmark position, then choose "Insert/Bookmark...". Give the bookmark a name. You can also have FDP automatically assign a bookmark name by highlighting some text at the bookmark location. By default, FP will use that highlighted text as the bookmark name. If you then have, say, an index.htm file associated with your web page/s you can create hyperlinks and include bookmarks to aid navigation. In theory that is what's supposed to happen. My problem is, I can get bookmarks to work internally on a single web page, but I can't get them to work between pages. I'm sure I used to be able to do it in earlier FP versions...

Yes, tried all that already. It still doesn't work. I even did a restart, thinking it may be one of those stupid "refresh" issues (you know, the ones where the computer likes to let you know it's the boss). No luck. Stupid things. I hate them, but unfortunately I have to use them.

Having said that, I went back to my index.htm, did a little mock-up subheading and managed to link to a bookmark in a second web page! And I could see all the other 25 bookmarks on that page. Why? Why? Why? Is it trying to make me crazy?

not sure if I'm on the same track as what you are after, but select the text that you want to hyperlink, click on the hyperlink button, and at the top right of the dialog box (below "screen tip") there is a "bookmark" button.
Select your bookmark and go for it...is this too simple? Is this not what you are after?

Oh yes, I also did all that. The problem was, there was nothing under bookmark even though I had set up about 25 of them. And I know enough about FP to be fairly confident that I went about it the right way. Anyhoo, as indicated in my last post, the "problem" seems to have righted itself but I don't know how/why. I guess I'll just consign that little episode to the Twilight Zone!
