Give a Heading an Anchor Name

If you want to send an email with a link to a specific heading within a ScreenSteps article (or include a link from your web application to a specific heading in a ScreenSteps article), you can use anchors in your article headings.

When you save an article in ScreenSteps each heading will have an anchor generated using the heading text. These instructions will show you how to customize that anchor name or add one after creating a new heading.
