I'm working on a lengthy grant proposal. Scrolling through the document to find a particular section is tiresome. Is there a better way to move through the document?
If your word processor is Microsoft Word, you can use the Bookmark feature.
Highlight the section title, or simply click in the spot where you'd like to add a Bookmark. Click on the Insert menu, scroll down to Bookmark, and click again. Under Bookmark name type the name of the section, or another title that will make sense to you later. The name must begin with a letter and may not include spaces, but you can separate words by using an underscore '_'. Click Add.
To return to a Bookmarked section of a document, click on the Insert menu, scroll down to Bookmark, and click one time. Under Bookmark name, click of the title of the section you want to access, and then click on Go To.
This simple technique saves time and makes editing much easier.
