Editing long Word documents can be very confusing. The more content a document contains, the faster you lose track of it. Use bookmarks to keep control over any Word document, no matter how long. Like a real bookmark, you can insert them to mark certain parts of the text. You keep an overview and work on your text efficiently and easily.
Bookmarks make a document easier to follow and work with. Each bookmark has a unique name, and marks a place in the document you can search for and jump to.
Bookmarks can also link to pages that do not have individual headings. Subchapters or details with bookmarks are easier to navigate and bring more structure to the document. Since a hyperlink in the document text can point directly to a bookmark, readers can access the marked passage at any time.
